70th Anniversary Edition
Seven Decades of Scientific Excellence

***** [five stars]"The handbook every chemist must have ... A close-at-hand, bookshelf necessity for science students, chemists, chemical engineers, and … others whose sphere of interest intersects with that of chemistry.... If you have been using a copy of the [earlier] edition ... you should upgrade now."
—Online review of the Fifteenth Edition

"Bargains are rare in the publication arena, but this book represents one ... It is just overflowing with useful information that is available at your beck and call."
—American Medical Technologists' AMT Events magazine, on an earlier edition

"Classic reference for chemists ... Excellent reference ... Easy access to chemistry and physics data in this one-volume compilation."
—CHOICE magazine, on an earlier edition

Respected for over seven decades as the standard reference for chemists and chemical engineers, this extensively revised and updated 70th Anniversary Edition of Lange's Handbook of Chemistry is an enormous compendium of facts, data, and tabular material. Lange's lists the properties of over 4000 organic and 1400 inorganic compounds. The new edition features new tables covering viscosity, thermal conductivity, critical constants, explosion limits, and vapor density; and for the first time in Lange's, equations allow the calculation of values such as temperature and pressure.
