Introduction -- Abbreviations -- Condensed chemical dictionary -- Appendix I: Origin of some chemical terms -- Appendix II: Highlights in the history of chemistry -- Appendix III: Manufacturers of trademarked products (alphabetical list). For eighty-two years, this authoritative reference has been the bedrock volume for professionals worldwide involved with chemicals - from scientific and technical staff, to sales and marketing personnel, to managers and administrators. This resource remains unrivaled in totality, easy accessibility, and conciseness of data for common chemical substances and phenomena. In its fourteenth edition, Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary once again establishes itself as the world's principal lexicon of industrial chemicals, nomenclature, processes, reactions, products, and related terminology. Scrutinized and extensively revised by internationally renowned chemist and reference author, Richard J. Lewis Sr., this newest edition features updated information on production, usage, and regulatory trends. In addition, the dictionary contains: Up-to-date chemical entries, definitions, and cross references; web links to new, as well as established, manufacturers and associations; and to-the-point information on natural products, manufacturing processes, and equipment This latest edition of the Condensed Chemical Dictionary has retained all the essential characteristics that have made it a bestseller by providing identification of chemical substances by name, physical properties, source of occurrence, CAS number, chemical formula, potential hazards, derivations, synonyms, and applications. It continues to be an essential tool for chemists and chemical engineers, environmental professionals, industrial hygienists, toxicologists, police and firefighters, EMTs, emergency clean-up technicians, and managers of toxicological and chemical information systems.
