Organic Analytical Reagents

Nature volume 162, page 48 (10 July 1948) | Download Citation



These two volumes form part of a Work which X when complete should be a most useful compilation. The author‘s aim has been to collect information from the literature describing the uses of all organic substances in inorganic analysis. The term "analytical reagent"in the title is thus taken to include all incidental uses of organic compounds, if only, for example, as solvents in an extraction, a precipitation or a colour test. On the other hand, the operations listed are, in fact, all for the detection or determination of inorganic atoms and radicals (with the exception of tests for acetates, cyanides and cyanates) and applications to the detection or determination of organic compounds are not considered, although the title gives no indication of this.
