If your work requires that you understand environmentally important properties of chemicals, then this databook will make your job easier. By providing you with easily accessed information on the structure and physical/chemical properties of more than 13,000 environmentally important chemicals, Handbook of Physical Properties of Organic Chemicals simplifies the task of locating and analyzing common and obscure compounds alike. One best experimental value is selected or an estimated value provided for: o Melting point o Boiling point o Water solubility o Octanol/water partition coefficient (log) o Vapor pressure o Disassociation constant o Henry's law constant. These physical properties were identified from Syracuse Research Corporation's Environmental Fate Database, particularly from the DATALOG and CHEMFATE files.
