The advances in the application of the methods of analytic chemistry to the various branches of industry and to the application of special branches of science in the last decade have been many. The present volume is intended to summarize briefly the methods in use up to about ten years ago and in more detail the advances in the last decade. The editor has obtained the collaboration of experts in each field covered in the volume, which insures for the reviews a note of authority.
