They are also designed to help the user, select the appropriate heading and subheading for a chemical compound based on the structure of the chemical. The manuals have been designed for those who have little or no knowledge of chemistry, but who have a working knowledge of the tariff schedule and the General Rules of Interpretation. It is also useful for chemists who are not familiar with the HTS tariff.These one-of-a-kind resources are competitively priced at $150.00 for the Chemical Manual and $75.00 for the Polymer Manual.
