One of the most important data reference books used by scientists worldwide for over a hundred years, now with quick and easy access to everything it has to offer, whether browsing the Table of Contents or searching for a specific piece of data.

The latest edition continues the tradition of updating existing tables with the most current data and introducing new topics of interest to the scientific community. The electronic version retains the look and feel of the printed book, with further chemical information, a host of data searching and manipulation features, and several expanded and additional tables.

Two main modules:

Document Mode - Search and browse the Handbook documents and tables. View interactive tables and generate graphs, export table data, etc.

Chemistry Mode - All chemical compounds and their associated physical properties from the 700+ document tables in the Handbook collated into a single searchable database. Search for a compound by name, formula, property or structure, view all available physical properties, its structure etc. in a chemical entry and export data.
