Inorganic Chemistry


FIFTY years ago there were no books on physical chemistry. The work which had been done on the borderline of physics and chemistry was scattered in different journals and was not readily accessible to the student.. The first volume of Miller's “Chemistry,” Tilden's “Chemical Philosophy,” and certain articles of, the old Watts's “Dictionary” were the first available summaries of what is now one of the most important branches of the subject.. The works of Lothar Meyer and Ostwald, published in the late 'seventies of the last century, did much to direct attention to the importance 6f physical chemistry. The first professor of physical chemistry was appointed only twenty-five years ago, and even now this.hranch of the subject is still allotted to a lecturer at some of the universities in this country.
