This book is primarily written for those studying for the Pharmaceutical Society's diploma and degrees in pharmacy, and contains the pharmaceutic and organic chemistry—both theoretical and practical—necessary for the chemist and druggist qualifying examination. The book is divided into two parts, inorganic and organic. The former includes a description of the nonmetallic substances of the British Pharmacopeia, with tests for impurities and detailed methods of analysis described in the British Pharmacopeia. Part II comprises the organic, describing methods of detection, ultimate analysis of the elements and a concise general survey of the subject, including a description of the organic substances of the British Pharmacopeia. The appendix contains useful schemes for the identification of the more common inorganic and organic compounds. Provided the text is used as the authors intend, that is, only by, those who have completed a course in systematic chemistry, it may serve a useful purpose, although it
