Inorganic Preparations

Nature volume 139, page 352 (27 February 1937) | Download Citation



THE present book contains detailed descriptions of 187 preparations, and sketches of almost as many additional preparations. The accounts of the experiments are sufficiently detailed to ensure success, and references to the literature are given. The text is arranged under the headings: physical state, elements, binary compounds, acids, bases and salts, complex salts, compounds of some rarer elements, and reactions which form the basis of some industrial processes. Many ot the experiments are suitable for pupils in schools and the more difficult ones for university courses. They will form a valuable supplement to the courses in analysis, which fail to teach many important aspects of laboratory manipulation. The book may be warmly recommended, and it deserves to be widely used.
