9780198558187: The Elements (Oxford Chemistry Guides)

The third edition of this widely acclaimed reference book collects together the most important facts about all the chemical elements in a single volume. While retaining the same easy-to-use alphabetical format, the existing sections on the various properties of the elements have been updated, and new sections on biological, crystal, and geological data have been added. Other additions include foreign names of the elements, pronunciation guides, CAS numbers, a table of minerals, four new elements, and a new chapter on the discovery of development of the periodic table. It is a handy guide for chemists, physicists, geologists, life scientists, and environmentalists.

About the Author:

John Emsley, Science Writer in Residence Department of Chemistry, Imperial College, London.

Review:


"Emsley's excellent compendium has two densely packed pages of information about each of the chemical elements, including physical, chemical, and biological data. This third edition . . . includes new information on such matters as health hazards, mineral sources, electron binding energies, and elements discovered since the second edition. There are brief chapters on the history of the periodic table, and the discovery and the abundance of the elements. Brief index. Strongly recommended as a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty."--Choice
