This English-Japanese dictionary contains about 35,000 basic and technical terms related to the physical and chemical sciences, which make up the foundation of basic science and technology. Fields covered include space sciences (including astronomy), earth sciences, biosciences, and information science.

Each entry contains the translation, pronunciation and explanatory comments. And it can also be used as a Japanese-English dictionary, since you can search a term in Japanese.

PDF links to appendices (e.g. the periodic table, numeric representations, composition of compound names, schematic of the solar system, character encoding tables, etc.) are placed on the main page of each entry, so the user can access information easily with one click.
