Hawley’s Condensed Chemical Dictionary Thirteenth Edition Richard J. Lewis, Sr. From its initial publication in 1919 through 12 subsequent editions, this concise reference has been a cornerstone volume for professionals throughout the chemical world—from scientific and technical staff, to sales and marketing personnel, to managers and administrators. No other resource provides such quick, easy access to precise technical data and descriptive information for common chemical substances and phenomena. Revised by world-renowned chemist and reference author, Richard J. Lewis, Sr., the Thirteenth Edition brings that legacy forward to again serve as the world’s foremost dictionary of industrial chemicals, nomenclature, processes, reactions, products, and related terminology. More than the brief lexicon its title implies, Hawley’s Condensed Chemical Dictionary identifies thousands of chemical substances by name, physical properties, source of occurrence, shipping regulations, CAS number, chemical formula, potential hazards, derivations, synonyms, and applications. In addition, the Dictionary provides brief but thorough information on:

  • Natural products, manufacturing processes, and equipment
  • Chemical entities,phenomena, and terminology from across the engineering and technological development spectrum
  • A wide range of trademarked products used in all kinds of chemical industries.
The contents and updating of each edition of the Condensed Chemical Dictionary have always reflected the trends in production, usage, and regulation of their time, and this edition is no exception. Scrutinized entry by entry and thoroughly revised, the Thirteenth Edition incorporates a wealth of new information, including:
  • Updated product and manufacturing information, including listings of new manufacturers and key products of each manufacturer
  • Updated CAS Numbers and Chemical Synonyms to facilitate chemical searches
  • Inclusion of Toxicity Evaluation and Reactivity/Flammability Data—critical first-response information
  • Updated coverage of processes and instrumentation representing the state-of-the-art in their fields
  • Revised definitions reflecting current product formulations, reactions, techniques, and materials.
Also included are biographical sketches of Nobel laureates and contact information for a number of professional associations and societies within the chemical industry. Hawley’s Condensed Chemical Dictionary, Thirteenth Edition, is an essential tool for chemists and chemical engineers, environmental professionals, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, police and fire-fighters, EMTs, emergency clean-up technicians, and managers of toxicological and chemical information systems. It is the go-to source to have within reach when accurate understanding of the impact of chemicals is needed and there is no time to waste.
