This book covers both general and physical methods used in official pharmaceutic analysis as directed by the United States Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary and aims to develop a logical explanation for the various steps in the analysis as well as presenting questions and problems which are intended to develop the student's reasoning capacity. The first chapter is an excellent introduction to general chemical analytical methods, including simple statistical presentation of results and presentations of such calculations as probable error, gravimetric methods applied to official substances, volumetric analysis, alkalimetry, acidimetry, precipitation methods, oxidation and reduction methods and gasometric methods. Part II is devoted to an exposition of physicochemical methods used in official assaying. In part III, special methods such as ash and moisture determinations, extractive and crude fiber content and analyses of drugs for proximate principles are taken up. This book bears the stamp of many years of experience in
