This is a handbook, as the title indicates, prepared with the assistance of various collaborators. The editor many years ago earned the confidence and respect of his profession and of those who require ready access to the chemical and physical data used in laboratory work and manufacturing. Several tables which appear in this edition for the first time have necessitated an increase in the number of pages. They are Periodic Table (Deming); Flammable Liquids; Flame Temperatures; Plastics; Fluorescence of Chemicals, Minerals and Gems; and Water for Industrial Use. Their contents will be welcomed by those engaged in that particular field. Many of the tables occurring in previous editions have been completely revised and brought up to date, thereby increasing the size of the volume. Previous books have proved to be of value not only to the chemists and chemical engineers working in manufacturing plants but to those employed in clinical
