How to Find Data: Physical, Chemical, Thermodynamic…

There are many chemistry handbooks in the Morisset Library. Some are available electronically, others in print. When a handbook is available in both versions it is recommended to consult the print rather than its electronic equivalent for the following 2 reasons:

1. Consulting tables of data can be easier in the print version of a handbook.

2. The use of a few handbooks in print will give you a clearer idea on how an electronic handbook works; therefore it makes your future use of an electronic handbook easier and more efficient.

  • CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (available in print REF QD 65.H3 and online) 
    • Data on properties of inorganic and organic compounds
  • International Critical tables of Numerical Data, Physics, chemistry, and Technology (available in print  REF Q 199 .N32 1926)
    • Physical, thermodynamic, mechanical and other key properties of organic and inorganic compounds. The print copy is published in 7 volumes + an index. Chemical compounds are arranged in the tables by formula according to a definite system explained in page 96 of volume 1. If only the name is known, the compound may be found with the aid of the index volume.
  • Lange’s Handbook of Chemistry(available in print REF QD 65 .L36 and online)
    • State-of-the-art-facts, figures, values, tables and formulas.
  • The Merck Index: an encyclopedia of chemicals, drugs and biologicals (available in print REF RS 51 .M4 and online).

Many other print handbooks are available in the reference room of Morisset Library in the QD section. Before using a handbook check the introduction for coverage, scope and comprehensiveness. You can access more electronic handbooks and encyclopedias by selecting from the tabs above.
