Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is now twice the size of the third edition, and there are 600 additional spectra. This $125 increase represents a price of $0.20 per new spectrum. The total price of the book/electronic version of 2,200 spectra represents a price of less than $0.35 per spectrum, which includes the handsomely hard-bound version of the book. Compared to the price of several other boutique databases that have recently been made available, the Adam s library is a definite bargain. This collection should not fall into the category of being judged by its cover, it should be judged by the apparent quality of the spectra and coverage of the topic both of which are more than adequately met. Besides the spectra of the additional compounds, this edition of the Adam s library contains a lot more new information: the AI retention data, sources of the compounds, and retention times with the Cross Index of Names (Appendix IV).

If you are doing research in essential oils components or have to identify unknowns, Identification of Essential Oil Components by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry, 4th Edition, will be a valuable addition to your collection of resources, even if you have the third edition. --O. David Sparkman University of the PacificMass Spectrometry Facility

The Third edition of Dr Adam's book presents a very useful compilation of over 1600 mass spectra of terpenes, aliphatic esters, hydrocarbons, aromatics and other compounds encountered in natural products chemistry, especially the chemistry of essential oils. Not only are the mass spectra given but the compound's Retention Index on the commonly used DB-5 glc column are included. There are indices of the Retention Index arranged both alphabetically and in Retention Index order, making it a very practical tool for use in natural products research. I have found this work extremely useful in my work in natural products chemistry. --J J Brophy, University of New South Wales

A library may wish to purchase only the book, but a researcher should purchase the book/electronic version package. There has been an increase in price of $125 from the third to the fourth edition for the book and the book/electronic version.

Dr. Adams' book is an invaluable aid in the research and analysis of essential oils components. It explains and diagrams over 2,000 compounds that have been analyzed from the plant with mass spectrometry. Names are cross-indexed along with their synonyms. Adams is on the editorial boards of Journal of Essential Oil Research and Biochemical Systematics and Ecology and a Byalor University Professor. --Kathi Keville, AHA Editor, American Herb Association
