This digital dictionary, based on the Dictionary of Chemistry (Second Edition) which was published in 2009, covers a range of fields, from substances to global-scale problems, with a focus on usefulness. In addition to basic and applied chemistry, it includes the latest knowledge from a wide range of interdisciplinary areas (including nuclear science, radiation, energy, life sciences, the environment and pollution).
For names of compounds, the dictionary clearly states standard systematic names and industrial usages, and the CAS registry number is included in order to enable online searches of substances and derivatives. With regard to chemical nomenclature, academic terminology, units, and symbols, in principle the dictionary adopts the Japanese Scientific Terms compiled by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the International System of Units (SI) and the JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards). In order to provide correct understanding, there are more than 12,000 entries, concentrating on practical science.
The text screen of each entry is accompanied by documents in PDF format (the fundamental physical constants, basic nuclide table, normal electrode potential, ionic radius table, etc.) as well as links to indexes of chemical formulas and people, providing access to needed information with a single click.
Further, to increase usability, entries can be searched for chemical formulas (for example, by entering H2O as “H2O,” you can search for the entry for “water”).
This content is an excellent resource for people involved in the areas surrounding chemistry and for learners.
