The latest edition of the world's most popular scientific reference features tables and reference sections on everything from the Periodic Table to the bond lengths in organometallic compounds. Featuring the latest facts and figures, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics contains all the most frequently used data in science, including the periodic table of the elements, basic constants and units, and geophysical data.

For decades, physicists and chemists have turned to this handbook as their primary source for reliable data. Every year, material is critically evaluated, new data is added, and existing tables are updated. The 81st edition includes eight new and forty revised or updated tables. Nowhere else will you find such a useful compilation of scientific data. Don't be left behind. Your research deserves the best data available - the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics has it.

Tables new in the 81st edition:

  • Melting Point Index of Organic Compounds
  • Boiling Point Index of Organic Compounds
  • Electrical Conductivity of Water
  • Properties of Liquid Helium
  • Bond Length in Organometallic Compounds - filling an important gap in previous editions
  • Organic Magnets
