All aspects of the chemical elements are presented in this easy-to-use reference for high school and college students. This one-volume work, which includes descriptions of the most recently discovered elements, provides information on each element, usually found only by consulting many different sources. This information includes symbol, atomic number, common valence, atomic weight, natural state, common isotopes, characteristics, abundance, history, common uses, examples of common compounds, and hazards. Schematic diagrams of each of the elements through number 103 accompany their descriptions.
