The specialty chemical industry is focused on the development of chemicals and materials from the perspective of function and market value. The emphasis is not on the empirical structure of these chemicals, but on how they serve end-user markets. The growth of specialty chemicals as a global industry, is tied to exploring and expanding functions and applications for both new and existing chemicals that can serve traditional and niche markets, as well as bringing these chemicals to new geographic markets.

It is essential for those involved in the production and distribution of specialty chemicals to have ready access to a reference that contains integrated information on these chemicals, their properties, functional and application market sectors, manufacturers and distributors. Specialty Chemicals Source Book, now in its Fourth Edition, serves this purpose. It has been extensively revised and expanded and now contains approximately 18,000 monographs on this group of chemicals with 70,000 cross-referenced chemical synonyms, and more than 60,000 trade name equivalents.

Primary source for information on trade name and generic chemical products. Data from technical specification sheets, brochures, and MSDS from over 4,400 chemical manufacturers and their branches are collected, processed, and updated on a continuous basis. This research has yielded comprehensive profiles on the generic chemicals contained in this reference and are currently used in a variety of formulated end products. This two-volume reference profiles these chemicals, lists and fully cross-references their chemical and trade name synonyms, and presents full contact information for their generic and trade name chemical manufacturers (including email and internet addresses).
