Bretherick's Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards, Fourth Edition provides information pertinent to the reactive hazards associated with the use of chemicals. This book discusses the development of the technologies, particularly in the area of safety research. Organized into two chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the advantages to be gained in grouping together elements or compounds showing similar reactivity or structure. This text then explores the underlying principles and practical aspects of minimizing reactive chemical hazards. Other chapters consider the rate of an exothermic chemical reaction, which determines the rate of energy release. This book discusses as well the factors that affect reaction kinetics, which are significant in relation to possible reaction hazards. The final chapter deals with reactions at high temperature that may be exceptionally hazardous attributed to the enhanced kinetic energy content of the system. This book is a valuable resource for chemists. Safety officers who are tasked for safety in industrial laboratories will also find this book extremely useful.
