Phosphorus 2000. Chemistry, biochemistry & technology . By D. E. C. Corbridge. Amsterdam: Elsevier, 2000, pp. × + 1258. Price NLG 1095, EU 496.89, US $ 573.50. ISBN 0-444-82550-9.

This encylopedic volume `has been adapted from the fifth edition of Phosphorus: An outline of its chemistry, biochemistry & technology (1995), to which corrections, major rearrangements of text, and many additions have been made'. Phosphorus chemistry is treated `as a major branch of science in its own right – displacing the outmoded and frequently inappropriate concepts of "organic" and "inorganic" branches of chemistry... inherited from earlier centuries'.
