This is an indispensable reference book. I use it daily. I recently upgraded to this most recent version. I have had it about 3 weeks. I went to look up quinine today and couldn't find the Q's. Then I had a brief moment of disbelief and I recited the alphabet to myself to make sure I wasn't missing something. Then, I noticed my copy skipped from page 1376 to page 1425! Fortunately I can still exchange the book, but beware....count your pages when you get this book.

Otherwise, great book. And the included CD-ROM provides a little extra searching power. I would prefer that the CD interface and printouts were a little cleaner.

The Merk Index is an essential reference book for chemists. During my entire career working in the research and development of analytical chemistry methods for pharmaceuticals, there always was a copy of The Merk Index in the laboratory. Usually, I had my own copy of an earlier edition on my own bookshelf, over my desk. I cannot imagine starting a new method development project without, first, looking for any pertinent information that might be in The Merk Index.

The problem can be resolved by thier "stupid" customer service people, if you can somehow convince them that you have the correct CD. The Merck software is excellent, and the Cambridgesoft software running it is terrible, I feel sorry for Merck. It wouldn't run properly on my machine, I had to go back and forth over 4 days to resolve this issue with their outsourced (to India) technical staff via email. Apparently if you have a previous version of Merck installed with Cambridgesoft software on your XP, then you will need to perform some surgery on your Registry, and then install an update into certain files locaed on the C drive.

Once you get it working, it should be fine.

No doubt however that the TEXT Merck Index is EXCELLENT.

Have heard some good things about this book and have not been disappointed. All who buy this book will get what they pay for and more. All Merck books have been awesome resources for me. I am in pre-med and am taking pharmacology next semester and I know that this book will make things loads easier; also it is not as expensive as any CRC Handbook. I am thrifty buyer and this book was worth the extra I payed for it. =o) Thanks for reading.

PS> buy the book!!!! it is awesome.

Years of Reading Pleasure all in One Book.
Sleeps with me every night; my wife isn't too impressed by it.
Can glaze over the eyes of the un-interested within seconds.
Highly informative and recommended.
Great quality and price.

As a chemical engineering researcher, the Merck Index has been with me my entire career. Anyone out there who is remotely involved with biopharmaceuticals, galvanized plating, trigonal planar Lithium hydride battery formulations, or just plain ole kitchen cabinet cleaners. The Merck Index is your sole go to reference source for arriving to the heart of the chemistry rapidly. Researchers typically let their imaginations wander in the dark cave of molecular research frontiers and the Merck Index is their safe flashlight of known reactivities and quantities.
