About this Book
Famous for its history of numerous element discoverers, Sweden is the origin of this comprehensive encylopedia of the elements.
It provides both an important database for professionals as well as detailed reading ranging from historical facts, discoverers' portraits, colour plates of mineral types, natural occurrences, and industrial figures to winning and refining processes, biological roles and applications in modern chemistry, engineering and industry.
Elemental data is presented in fact tables which include numerous physical and thermodynamic properties, isotope lists, radiation absorption characteristics, NMR parameters, and others. Further pertinent data is supplied in additional tables throughout the text.
Published in Swedish in three volumes from 1998 to 2000, the contents have been revised and expanded by the author for this English edition.
