Under this title, or as, simply, Handbook of chemistry and physics, this venerable work is cited in Guide to reference books, Public library catalog, Walfords, and (the 84th edition) Resources for college libraries. The 89th edition continues the format of the past, with new tables added for atomic radii, composition and properties of common oils and fats, global warming potential of greenhouse gases, weather-related scales, energy content of fuels, properties of gas clathrate hydrates, melting curve of mercury, enthalpy of hydration of gases, and electrical resistivity of graphite materials. Other tables have been updated and revised, including the table of interatomic distances and bond angles in gas phase molecules and the table on bond dissociation energies. Also new to this edition is the addition of the full CODATA recommended values of the fundamental physical constants. The IUPAC standard atomic weights has been updated to reflect the 2007 changes. With its impressive, seemingly exhaustive collection of tables, this is an invaluable reference for anyone in the field, whether student or professional.
