Looking for a book.....


Could anyone recommend a comprehensive chemical (with the emphasis on inorganic) data book please? I'm after something that has stuff like heats of formation, solubility constants, mp and bp etc. I of course have the CRC handbook, but to tell the truth it's not as good on inorganics (and inbetweenies like metal salts of organic acids) as I could do with. Thanks.

Not a book but a large collection of books in series

Mellor's, in English

or Gmelin in German.

In both cases organized by element.

Use a library. A few volumes of Mellor are available on the forum library page for free. Chromium, and Sulfur, if I recall.

A comprehensive treatise on inorganic and theoretical chemistry Vol. I

A comprehensive treatise on inorganic and theoretical chemistry Vol. II

Gmelin´s Handook of chemistry Vol 1-12 and 17-18 are also availiable online (english translation from the german ones)

They're roughly 900 MB each. Download and open locally, they work fine that way.
