Since its first edition in 1991, this dictionary of chemistry has received critical acclaim from both English and German speakers. Yet science has progressed immensely since then, bringing forth a plethora of novel terms and compounds that researchers as well as company staff and students need to know -- and which are now captured in this second edition. Still unrivalled in its scope, this edition contains 180,000 entries, of which 10% are novel terms from chemistry and nanotechnology, while preserving obsolete chemical language for doubt-free backfile reading. The dictionary covers both the vocabulary as well as the IUPAC, trivial and trade names of some 40,000 compounds, and now features an entirely new empirical formula index for comfortable compound search.Biografía del autor:
