A Systematic Qualitative Chemical Analysis: A Theoretical and Practical Study of Analytical Reactions of the more Common Ions of Inorganic Substances

    Abstract

    The introductory part of the work under notice contains a brief account of such matters as equilibrium, ionisation, and solubility product. The section on the detection and separation of the metals is in the form of numbered experiments, and is much less clear and useful than the usual arrangement in tables. The explanations of the reactions, however, are very clearly and fully described, and would be useful in supplementing analysis tables. The section on acids relies on precipitation methods with a single sample, and all preliminary tests are omitted. This seems to be a mistake, as many acids are readily found by simple preliminary methods. There appear to be no features which would indicate any marked superiority of the book over existing treatises.
