This volume introduces the first of a series of monographs on analytic chemistry and its applications. The rapidly expanding literature on industrial hygiene attests the growing need for a compilation such as the present book; a collection into one volume of information about the numerous hazards and poisons with which the industrial hygiene chemist is concerned and the methods developed for their detection, sampling and quantitative determination. The scope of the book is indicated by a survey of the numerous chapters, which include industrial hygiene and industrial poisons, sampling, measurement of gas volume and quantity, absorbers and absorbents, the chemical and microscopic estimation of dust and silica, dangerous metals, the common poisonous compounds of sulfur, phosphorus, nitrogen and halogens, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocyanic acid and cyanogen, combustible solvent vapors, paraffin and unsaturated hydrocarbons, benzene and the aromatic hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, glycols, alcoholethers and ethers, acids, esters, aldehydes and
