This is the fourth edition of a two-volume reference intended to provide those involved in the production and distribution of specialty chemicals with integrated information on these chemicals and their properties, functional and application market sectors, and manufacturers and distributors.

Each of these profiles includes information on Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) numbers, European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances/European List of Notified Chemical Substances (EINECS/ELINCS) numbers, UN/DOT reference numbers, FEMA numbers, classification, definition, chemical synonyms, empirical and molecular formulas, properties, toxicology, precautions, storage, use, use level, regulatory details, manufacturers and distributors, and trade name synonyms. The reference also includes a manufactures directory with available contact information; a function/application index allowing the user to locate chemicals based on functions such as accelerator, antistat, catalyst, deflocculant, or plasticizer as well as application key words such as adhesives, coatings, inks, paper, water treatment, and the like; CAS and EINECS/ELINCS number indexes; a chemical formula index; a glossary; and a bibliography.
