A Scheme of Qualitative Organic Analysis

Article metrics


THE student of organic chemistry will find in this book an excellent presentation of qualitative organic analysis along familiar lines. After application of the tests for elements and the usual preliminary examination classification tests enable the experimenter to assign the substance under investigation to its class. Confirmatory tests are then made, and crystalline derivatives prepared by means of which the substance is finally identified. Many valuable tames are provided listing individual members of the various classes, with their physical constants, and suitable derivatives - for their identification. The range of these tables is more comprehensive than is usual in a book of this standard. Numerous up-to-date tests have been included, and the reviewer has noticed very few errors apart from a confusion between m.p. and b.p. in the headings of several tables.
