Editorial Reviews


Reorganized since the 15th edition and now edited by Speight, Lange's contains information for chemists and chemical engineers. It has four sections: general information and conversion tables, spectroscopy, inorganic chemistry, and organic chemistry... Lange's is essential for students and researchers in chemistry. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-division undergraduates and higher. -- S.K. Oelker, Drew University Choice 20050601

From the Back Cover

70th Anniversary Edition
Seven Decades of Scientific Excellence

***** [five stars]"The handbook every chemist must have ... A close-at-hand, bookshelf necessity for science students, chemists, chemical engineers, and … others whose sphere of interest intersects with that of chemistry.... If you have been using a copy of the [earlier] edition ... you should upgrade now."
―Online review of the Fifteenth Edition

"Bargains are rare in the publication arena, but this book represents one ... It is just overflowing with useful information that is available at your beck and call."
―American Medical Technologists' AMT Events magazine, on an earlier edition

"Classic reference for chemists ... Excellent reference ... Easy access to chemistry and physics data in this one-volume compilation."
―CHOICE magazine, on an earlier edition

Respected for over seven decades as the standard reference for chemists and chemical engineers, this extensively revised and updated 70th Anniversary Edition of Lange's Handbook of Chemistry is an enormous compendium of facts, data, and tabular material. Lange's lists the properties of over 4000 organic and 1400 inorganic compounds. The new edition features new tables covering viscosity, thermal conductivity, critical constants, explosion limits, and vapor density; and for the first time in Lange's, equations allow the calculation of values such as temperature and pressure.

NEW AND REVISED COVERAGE OF Organic Compounds * General Information, Conversion Tables, and Mathematics * Inorganic Compounds * Properties of Atoms, Radicals, and Bonds * Physical Properties * Thermodynamic Properties * Spectroscopy * Electrolytes, Electromotive Force, and Chemical Equilibrium * Physicochemical Relationships * Polymers, Rubbers, Fats, Oils, and Waxes * Practical Laboratory Information

Format: Hardcover
Very few refrences works these days seem indispensable or can be easily found on-line. However Lange's Handbook is the essential tool for any working chemist.

Excerpt: This new edition, the fifth under the aegis of the present editor, remains the one-volume source of factual information for chemists, both professionals and students-the first place in which to "look it up" on the spot. The aim is to provide sufficient data to satisfy all one's general needs without recourse to other reference sources. A user will find this volume of value as a time-saver because of the many tables of numerical data that have been especially compiled.

Descriptive properties for a basic group of approximately 4300 organic compounds are compiled in Section 1, an increase of 300 entries. All entries are listed alphabetically according to the senior prefix of the name. The data for each organic compound include (where available) name, structural formula, formula weight, Beilstein reference (or if un- available, the entry to the Merck Index, 12th ed.), density, refractive index, melting point, boiling point, flash point, and solubility (citing numerical values if known) in water and various common organic solvents. Structural formulas either too com¬plex or too ambiguous to be rendered as line formulas are grouped at the bottom of each facing dou¬ble page on which the entries appear. Alternative names, as well as trivial names of long-standing usage, are listed in their respective alphabetical order at the bottom of each double page in the regular alphabetical sequence. Another feature that assists the user in locating a desired entry is the empirical formula index.

This book has a great selection of tables of properties for inorganic and organic compounds, and so is a must-have for any chemist. However, the book is a bit weak in regards to solving chemistry problems--for this, purchase REA's The Chemistry Problem Solver.

was returned because it was poorly written for the price and was too academic to be useful as a reference.
