Wiley publishes Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry, Fifth Edition, in January 2005

January 14, 2005

Chemistry is now vital to a diverse number of industries and areas of study, including electronics and communications, energy sources and conservation, waste handling and pollution abatement, biotechnology, molecular biology, pharmaceuticals, and chemotherapies. As chemistry continues to traverse interdisciplinary lines, scientists, engineers, and technologists in many fields require knowledge of chemistry to understand how it impacts their fields. Maintaining the accessibility, succinctness, and comprehensiveness of Van Nostrand Reinhold Encyclopedia of Chemistry, VAN NOSTRAND'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CHEMISTRY, FIFTH EDITION (Wiley; January 2005; Cloth; $195.00; 0-471-61525-0) still represents the benchmark chemical reference for individual researchers and students.

Incorporating more than 1,350 entirely new articles and updates of more than 1,300 existing articles, this new edition presents a wider area of coverage, as well as developments made in the past 20 years. Topics receive a progressive treatment, beginning with a simple definition and then moving into a more extensive discussion. This edition also features many more tables, graphs, and print and online references, which facilitate complete understanding of a subject. The sophistication and specialization of today's chemistry is well served by the many expert contributors from industry and academia.

"Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry, Fifth Edition" Addresses Such Emerging Areas as:
  • Nanotechnology
  • Green chemistry
  • Fuel cell Technology
  • Forensic chemistry
  • Supramolecular chemistry
  • Combinatorial chemistry
  • Materials chemistry

    Revised and expanded to reflect the latest scholarship and technology, "Van Nostrand's Encyclopedia of Chemistry, Fifth Edition" is an essential resource for both students and practitioners.
