The term "incompatibilities" describes a wide range of chemical reactions that produce undesirable results in noncontrolled situations: generation of toxic gases, fire, explosions, corrosive activity, polymerization, ruptured containers, creation of more dangerous compounds, etc. The Second Edition of the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities compiles hard-to-find data on over 11,000 chemical compounds, providing chemists, technicians, and engineers a thorough, lightning-quick resource to use during experimental preparation and in the event of an emergency.
With over 2,000 more chemical listings than the First Edition, the revised and expanded Second Edition approaches complicated chemical information in a convenient, easy-to-use format that helps readers make safe decisions quickly. Alphabetical organization provides concise incompatibility profiles for thousands of commonly used commercial chemicals, allowing readers to look up a given substance and instantly learn whether it is incompatible with common materials, other chemical substances, structural materials, or personal protective equipment. All entries include CAS numbers to eliminate possible confusion among similar synonym names, as well as the corollary names of chemicals in Spanish. The authors have also added a glossary of general chemical terms for readers who may not be chemists, but are nevertheless responsible for the well-being of employees and the environment.
With thousands of new entries and easy-to-use organization, the Second Edition of the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities remains a handy resource for all safety, first-response, and plant management professionals responsible for the handling, storage, and conveyance of chemical materials.
