Famous for its history of numerous element discoverers, Sweden is the origin of this comprehensive encylopedia of the elements.
It provides both an important database for professionals as well as detailed reading ranging from historical facts, discoverers' portraits, colour plates of mineral types, natural occurrences, and industrial figures to winning and refining processes, biological roles and applications in modern chemistry, engineering and industry.
Elemental data is presented in fact tables which include numerous physical and thermodynamic properties, isotope lists, radiation absorption characteristics, NMR parameters, and others. Further pertinent data is supplied in additional tables throughout the text.
Published in Swedish in three volumes from 1998 to 2000, the contents have been revised and expanded by the author for this English edition.

About the Author:

Per Enghag graduated from the Swedish School of Mining and Metallurgy in Filipstad and from Stockholm University, Sweden. He got his Doctor's degree in chemistry in Uppsala in 1973 and was appointed associate professor (docent) in Materials Chemistry in 1986. During the 1960s he was director for the School of Mining and Metallurgy and lectured in physical and applied chemistry. Before and after that period, he worked in R&D at the Swedish Institute for Metal Research, at the Axel Johnson Institute for Industrial Research, and in industry. From 1980 on, he has run his own company, Materialteknik (Applied Materials Technology). From that position he has worked with research planning and education in Sweden and abroad, also for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). At the new University in Örebro, he contributed by building up a Materials Technology Laboratory.

Review:

"...in an encyclopedia that brims with life-long reference value, the student has the whole and complete record of the elements at his fingertips."
Electric Review

"... goes beyond just listing properties and chemical facts. It is full of interesting historical
information, anecdotes and fascinating asides."
Chemistry World

"The book is well researched and very accurate, providing the reader with reliable information. ...is a highly interesting addition to the chemical literature. ... I do not know of any other book that could at this moment be listed as a serious competitor. ...is a full-sized academic source of reference that will probably rapidly find lots of friends in all fields from (of course) inorganic chemistry, mineralogy and material science but probably among solid-state physics and geochemists, too."
The Chemical Educator

"...is full of fascinating accounts of the history of the elements and the uses to which they are put."
Chemistry & Industry

"... the most comprehensive >one-stop< compilation of factual data on the chemical elements and their history, occurrence and applications."
E-STREAMS

"...a useful compendium of the science, technology, culture, and history of the elements...for anyone interested in the history of chemistry, it should be a pleasure to pick an element at random and read one of these delightful essays..."
American Reference Books Annual, 2005

"This excellent encyclopedia deserves to reach a wide readership, and it is to be hoped that it will be bought by many university, senior school, and even city libraries."
Angewandte Chemie I.E.

"...a valuable reference book for any scientist or engineer ... professional chemists, physicists, mineralogists, and metallurgists as well as students ...will find the history of the elements, their discovery and properties interesting."
