Handbook of Chemistry and Physics – David R. Lide – 87th Edition


For more than 90 years, researchers around the world have relied on the CRC of and Physics for authoritative, up-to-date data. This year will be no exception. Many of the most heavily used tables in the book receive major updates and expansions, most notably:

of Compounds –
Features nearly 25% more compounds
Enthalpy of Fusion –
Contains updated values and 20% more compounds, especially inorganics
Bond Dissociation Energies –
Includes 70% more compounds, for the first time more than 1200 molecular ions
Table of the Isotopes –
Brought up to date with research results through the year 2005
Inorganic Ion and Ligand Nomenclature –
Incorporates new rules from IUPAC for systematic names
Carcinogens –
Updated in accordance with the recent report from the National Toxicology Program
Global Temperature Trends –
Traces the rise in mean global temperature for the last 150 years
