Physical constants of the principal hydrocarbon compendium

Identifier: GB11-038-002
Scope and content

It is the too common experience that the data desired immediately on a particular hydrocarbon are never to be found in the handbooks available in most laboratories, and for that matter, a considerable portion of the information is not cited in Beilstein's Handbuch der organischen Chemie, or at most literature references are given but not the desired values themselves. This compendium was meant to address this issue. It includes an explanatory forward by M. P. Doss.
