This Handbook is the ultimate hazardous materials reference. It contains reactivity, solubility, compatibility, physical, toxicological, flammability, and other safety data, as well as guidance on compatible protective clothing, clean-up, and decontamination procedures. Organized in an easy-to-follow format, and in language understandable to both chemist and layperson, materials are indexed for easy access by name, pseudonym, CAS number, DOT number, RTECS number, smell, and symptoms of exposure. The Handbook is divided into four major sections: o Complete hazardous materials entries o Shorter entries for much less hazardous chemicals or those that have one primary hazard o Indices to help find or identify chemicals involved in a hazardous materials event o A glossary of terms used in this text
