“In summary, this edition of the book addresses a broadspectrum of end users including administrators, researchers,instructors, engineers, and environment health officers. The bookis a useful comprehensive reference for academic institutions, butperhaps not for individual instructors.”  (Journal ofChemical Education, 1 January 2014)
