The first, second and third editions of the English-German dictionary of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering received a warm reception from users at home and abroad, as is shown by the many reviews in the international trade press. This is the fourth heavily revised edition of the dictionary which was first published in 1984. The whole vocabulary has been thoroughly revised and updated by including about 12,500 terms from recent literature, especially in the fields of analytical chemistry, kinetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, hydrochemistry and food technology. Meanwhile, a number of less important terms, many terms from marginal subjects and some universally understood terms (for instance from the areas of minerals, alkaloids and enzymes) have been eliminated. In many instances the German text is now more concise. Useful information such as references to special fields of application, definitions, explanations and hints regarding the use of certain terms, has been taken over from previous editions. To aid selection of the most appropriate equivalent of a term, many entries include information indicating the relevant scientific discipline, a short definition or an example.The dictionary is therefore extremely comprehensive and an invaluable reference for a wide range of users.
