Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Handbook has always provided a thorough range of critically evaluated data in a convenient, one-volume format. Over the period of last almost two decades it has addressed environmental concerns by providing data on pollutants, contaminants, global warming, and ground water contamination. It also has supported the advances in semiconductors and high-temperature superconductors, and amended pertinent data to stay current with IUPAC standards."
Gupta Verlag

"The ultimate book of facts about chemistry and physics. This is a book that covers virtually every element, every physical formula, and every mathematical table imaginable. It is hard to imagine any library, laboratory, or university that doesn’t have a copy."
Books-On-Line, February, 2009

 "The content is impressive . . . good value for money."
David W.H. Rankin, School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, in Crystallography Reviews, July-September 2009, Vol. 15, No. 3

Recent Reviews from Previous Editions:
“Regardless of user preferences for print, online, or CD-ROM formats, what really matters is the phenomenal content of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics. Summing Up: Highly recommended.”
—S. Korolev, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, in Choice Magazine, October 2007, Vol. 45, no. 2 (on the 88th Edition)

“In our view, this is a well written and beautifully presented handbook, reasonably priced, and houses a diverse range of data and information required by professionals. The data contained within this edition is concise, consistent, and reliable, in-line with the aim of the Handbook. It is, in our opinion, a prerequisite for any investigational research in the physical sciences...”
—Usman Iqbal Lula, Dorset Cancer Centre, Poole General Hospital, UK, and Sadiq Iqbal Lula, Cambridge Research Centre, Pfizer Inc., UK, in Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, December 2007, Vol. 8, issue 2 (on the 87th Edition)

“...What I think I like most [about this edition] is quite simply its authority, which comes from both its age and the constant revisions... This publication has a long and honorable track record... I’ve had a copy since my undergraduate days and it’s easily the most consistently useful single source of information I have. ...Unequivocal recommendation for the library...a personal copy is a thoroughly worthwhile and long-lasting investment. ...A scientific must-have.”
— Martin Preston, Dept. of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Liverpool, UK, in Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, Vol. 7, issue 1 (on the 86th Edition)

“This handbook is arguably one of the most well-known reference books in the world....If you are looking for data on the properties of a material, this is a great reference to have handy... .”
IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, September/October 2007, Vol. 23, no. 5 (on the 86th Edition)

About the Author

Profile of Dr. Haynes
Mickey Haynes joined the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 1970 as a National Research Council Postdoctoral Research Associate after completing his Ph.D. in physics at the University of Virginia. During this associateship, he carried out an experimental program on the viscosity of cryogenic fluids. In 1972 he became a permanent staff member and was involved in research on measurements and correlations of the thermophysical properties of fluids and fluid mixtures of scientific and industrial interest. He was involved in major projects on the properties of natural gas, cryogenic fluids, air, alternative refrigerants, and ammonia/water systems. Mickey was responsible for the development of state-of-the-art apparatus for measurements of both transport and thermodynamic properties of fluids (e.g., magnetic suspension densimeters and torsional crystal viscometers). The apparatus were used for fluid thermophysical property measurements at low and high temperatures and at extreme pressures; and for the development of empirical and theoretical models for the prediction of fluid properties.

In 1985, Mickey became Group Leader of the Properties of Fluids Group in the Thermophysics Division and served in that capacity for ten years. In 1989 he assumed the position of Deputy Chief of the Thermophysics Division, which was reorganized and became the Physical and Chemical Properties Division in 1996. While remaining in the Deputy Chief position, Mickey became the Assistant Director for Boulder of the Chemical Science and Technology Laboratory (CSTL) in 1994. He stayed in these positions until becoming the Chief of the Physical and Chemical Properties Division in 1999. Mickey remained in this position until he retired from the NIST in January 2003.

Mickey served on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Chemical and Engineering Data, Review of Scientific Instruments, and Cryogenics. At the request of the ASME Heat Transfer Division Committee on Thermophysical Properties, he was Chair and Organizer of the 13th and 14th Symposia on Thermophysical Properties in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Mickey has been previously active on ASTM Committee D03 on Gaseous Fuels (Chair of the ASTM Subcommitte D03.08 on Thermophysical Properties) and the ASME K-7 Committee on Thermophysical Properties. He has recently served on the International Advisory Committees of the 16th and 17th European Conferences on Thermophysical Properties, the 6th and 7th Asian Thermophysical Properties Conferences, and the 17th IUPAC Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics. Mickey was elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 1999 and has received several Department of Commerce (DOC)/NIST awards.

Since his retirement from the NIST in 2003, Mickey has remained active in several areas. Currently, he is a Scientist Emeritus in CSTL. He has been the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Thermophysics since 1997. Mickey was the President of the Executive Board responsible for organization of THERMO International, a joint conference comprised of the 16th Symposium on Thermophysical Properties, the 19th IUPAC Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics, and the 61st Calorimetry Conference held in Boulder in August, 2006. He has been a member of the ASME K-7 Committee on Thermophysical Properties since 1992 and is currently serving on the Touloukian Award Committee. Since 1998, Mickey has been a permanent member of the International Organizing Committee of the European Conference on Thermophysical Properties; he has also served on the International Advisory Committee of the Asian Thermophysical Properties Conference.

This is a classic reference for anyone working in the field of chemistry. I finally replaced my old one that I bought 50 years ago. Nice authoritative reference with lots of information.

I bought this for a future gift for my scientifically-inclined son. I just may have to buy myself a copy too, as I'm going to miss the surprising comfort I found in the tables, numbers, facts, and figures. It's an amazingly comprehensive book!

FOr example, the 1980 CRC chem ref i have is somewhat obsolete because the NIH has revised its' data on Human Exposure Limits of Carcinogens and Toxins....in 1980 they reported 410 mg limit of Methyl Methacrylate, but now, 2012-2013, it is one half that number.

Methyl Methacrylate and many other acrylates are put into cosmetic manufacturing.

Another nice change was an upgrade of the additional elements that were named finally since 1980, upto and including 112.

Lastly, among the 100's of changes and additions, this new edition is physically larger and easier to read than the 1980 version.

I've been using this book in it's various editions since the late 1970s. This is still without a doubt the best general reference for chemical data out there. A "must have" for any chemistry student. Also, a new edition makes a great gift for a graduating chemistry student.
