""Insgesamt hinterlässt das Handbuch inhaltlich einen sehr guten Eindruck. ... ist für Kollegen vieler Teilgebiete der Chemie relevant und sollte deshalb in keiner Chemie-Bibliothek fehlen. Dem präparativ orientierten Chemiker gibt es ein exzellentes Werkzeug an die Hand, Synthesen und Trenntechniken strategisch zu planen, dem Material-Chemiker veranschaulicht es die facettenreichen Einsatzmöglichkeiten fluoriger Verbindungen.""
