Provisional Recommendations

Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry

The purpose of this manual 3rd edition is to improve the exchange of scientific information among the readers in different disciplines and across different nations. As the volume of scientific literature expands, each discipline has a tendency to retreat into its own jargon. This book attempts to provide a readable compilation of widely used terms and symbols from many sources together with brief understandable definitions. This edition reflects the experience of the contributors with the previous editions, and we are grateful for the many thoughtful comments we have received. Most of the material in this book is “standard,” but a few definitions and symbols are not universally accepted. In such cases, we have attempted to list acceptable alternatives. The book has been systematically brought up to date and new sections have been added.
