Here is an invaluable resource for chemists, chemical engineers, laboratory technicians, and environmental engineers. Covering over 2000 of the most popular industrial chemicals, "Handbook of Inorganic Chemical Compounds" details the chemical reactions the subject chemicals undergo either in preparation or naturally--all presented in a dynamic, easy-to-understand style.

Selection of compounds in the "Handbook" was based on their industrial usage and application, as well as certain properties such as structural features, toxicity, or being reaction intermediates. Conveniently arranged in alphabetical order, each entry includes the following essential information:
* Synonyms
* Molecular weight
* Formula/structure and the type of compound based on functional group
* CAS registry number
* Occurrence
* Uses and applications
* Physical properties
* Methods of preparation with chemical equations
* Chemical reactions
* Health Chemical Analysis
