A New Scheme of Elementary Qualitative Analysis

    Naturevolume 149page486 (1942) | Download Citation



    ANY departure from the well-trodden paths of elementary qualitative analysis is a sufficiently novel event to stimulate the interest of all chemists engaged in the teaching or practice of chemical analysis. In this little volume, Dr. Mee describes a new workable scheme for the detection and separation of the common metals, the principal feature lying in the fact that hydrogen sulphide gas is not required in the analytical separations. The poisonous nature and the difficulty of providing adequate supplies of hydrogen sulphide provide an additional recommendation for these new methods, which do not require any reagents not part of the normal stock of a chemical laboratory. For confirmatory tests with certain metals, however, special reagents are advocated, but the detection of acid radicals follows conventional lines.
