Tour Introduction

Welcome to the tour of the online edition of The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, one of the most important data reference books used by scientists worldwide for over a hundred years. This new version enables quick and easy access to everything the Handbook has to offer. Whether you want to browse through the Table of Contents or search for a specific piece of data, you'll be sure to find what you were looking for, and more quickly than ever before.

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. In designing the electronic version we have attempted to retain the look and feel of the printed book as far as possible. However, since there were no page limit restrictions, it was possible to expand several tables in the electronic version and to retain tables dropped from the book.
