Index The most efficient way to use this index is to look for the pertinent property (e.g., va‑ por pressure, entropy), process (e.g., disposal of chemicals, calibration), or general con- cept (e.g., units, radiation). Most primary entries are subdivided into several secondary entries, e.g., under heat capacity there are 17 secondary entries such as air, metals, water, etc. Primary entries will be found for certain classes of substances , such as alloys, elements, organic compounds, refrigerants, semiconductors, etc. Primary entries are also given for the individual chemical elements and for a few compounds such as water and carbon dioxide. However, only the most important tables are listed under these substances. Therefore, the user will find in most cases that it is best to look first for the property of interest, then examine the table or tables that are referenced. Entries in boldface type are the titles of tables as they appear in the Table of Contents. The reference given for each index term is the inclusive pages of the pertinent table (e.g., 8‑ 45 to 55). The introduction to each table describes the method of ordering the substances within that table. The editor would be grateful for comments and suggestions on this index.
