Editorial Reviews

"This newest edition includes most recent CODATA fundamental physical constants published in 2010; IUPAC atomic weight; and the records of mean global temperature and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration through the end of 2012. Publisher of the first handbook was a family-owned company. In 1987, it was acquired by Times Mirror Co. Subsequent owners. This edition of Handbook of Chemistry and Physics serves the scientific community as a prime source of reliable information."
