Stories of past versions: 'an striking text...thoroughly urged' Loss Prevention Bulletin 'a booklet that are supposed to be in each laboratory, chemical plant, emergency reaction and hearth keep an eye on middle, university and school ... I commend this booklet to somebody interested in chemical protection and hygiene' Chemical and Engineering information '..a e-book that each chemist must have on their shelf' New Scientist 'This booklet is still a necessary resource of reference for all these approximately to embark upon unknown brews and concoctions of doubtless blameless chemical substances' Chemistry and Industry'The indexes are first-class, and there are very priceless cross-references among diverse species and diverse reactions.' selection 'It can also be a truly priceless and quickly access into the literature at the many risky chemical compounds which were synthesized and characterised in the course of the twentieth century.' selection 'Bretherick' is generally approved because the reference paintings on reactive chemical dangers and is key for all these operating with chemical compounds. It comprises each chemical for which documented details on reactive dangers has been came upon. The textual content covers over 5000 parts and compounds and as many back of secondary entries regarding or extra compounds. certainly one of its most precious positive factors is the huge move referencing all through either sections which hyperlinks comparable compounds or incidents now not evidently comparable. The 6th variation has been thoroughly up-to-date and revised by means of Peter Urben and comprises documented details on dangers and acceptable references as much as 1999 quantity 1 is dedicated to precise info at the balance of the indexed compounds, or the reactivity of combinations of 2 or extra of them lower than quite a few conditions. every one compound is pointed out by means of an UPAC-based identify, the CAS registry quantity, its empirical formulation and constitution. each one description of an incident or violent response supplies connection with the unique literature. each one chemical is classed at the foundation of similarities in constitution or reactivity, and those teams are indexed alphabetically in quantity 2. the crowd entries include an entire directory of all of the compounds in quantity 1 assigned to that staff to help go referral to related compounds. quantity 2 additionally comprises chance subject entries prepared alphabetically, a few with lists. Appendices contain a fireplace similar info desk for greater possibility chemical compounds, indexes of registry numbers and chemical names in addition to reference abbreviations and a thesaurus.
