Solvents have been traditionally chosen on the basis of whether they can do the job effectively anbd economically but other factors now have to be taken into consideration. Regulations relating to the exposure to solvent vapours have become more stringent hence the importance of choosing the best solvent for the job as early as possible in the process. This standard reference book sets out the physical properties of the fifty most commonly used solvents.
