Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, Seventeenth Edition

by: Dr. James G. Speight


Abstract: The go-to reference for chemists for more than 70 years—completely updated to include today's essential topics. Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, Seventeenth Edition, is written to provide a reliable one-stop source of factual information for today's working chemist. Within its pages, you will find an unmatched compilation of facts, data, tabular material, and experimental findings that span every area of chemistry. Included in this fully updated Seventeenth Edition are listings of the properties of more than 4000 organic and 1400 inorganic compounds. The Seventeenth Edition is enhanced by the addition of an all-new section on naturally occurring chemicals and chemical sources. This timely content includes descriptions of coal, crude oil, natural gas, tar sand and tar sand bitumen, oil shale, biomass and biofuels, and minerals. Sections include: • Inorganic Chemistry • Organic Chemistry • Naturally Occurring Chemicals and Chemical Sources • Spectroscopy (available online at www.mhprofessional.com/Langes) • General Information and Conversion Tables (available online at www.mhprofessional.com/Langes) If you prefer the convenience of one authoritative resource, rather than a multitude of scattered and diverse references, Lange's Handbook of Chemistry, Seventeenth Edition, belongs on your desk.

Authors:

Dr. James G. Speight CChem, FRSC, FCIC, FACS, earned his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees (in chemistry) from the University of Manchester, England. He also holds a D.Sc. (in geological sciences) from VINIGRI, St. Petersburg, Russia, and a Ph.D. (in petroleum engineering) from Dubna International University, Moscow, Russia. Dr. Speight has more than 45 years of experience in areas associated with (1) the properties, recovery, and refining of reservoir fluids, conventional petroleum, heavy oil, and tar sands bitumen; (2) the properties and refining of natural gas and gaseous fuels; and (3) the properties and refining of biomass, biofuels, and biogas, and the generation of bioenergy. His work has also focused on safety issues, environmental effects, and remediation associated with the production and use of fuels and biofuels. Dr. Speight is the author of more than 65 books on petroleum science, petroleum engineering, biomass and biofuels, and environmental sciences. He was elected to the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1996 and awarded the Gold Medal of Honor that same year for outstanding contributions to the field of petroleum sciences. Dr. Speight has also received the Scientists without Borders Medal of Honor from the Russian Academy of Sciences. In 2001, the Academy awarded him the Einstein Medal for outstanding contributions and service in the field of geological sciences.
