For the first time since 1850, a scheme of analysis is presented that does not require the use of hydrogen sulfide. Laboratories in which hydrogen sulfide is not used will be cheaper and safer to operate; the new analytical scheme is easy to learn; and modern techniques for identifying specific ions are employed. The book is both a laboratory manual and an exposition of the theoretical aspects. The instructions are easy to follow; the questions to be answered in the laboratory notebook provoke study of the relevant theory; and the sections dealing with theory are clearly written. Although budding chemists will profit by being taught from this book, the authors had in mind the large number of students for whom qualitative analysis is a required subject, including students of nursing and medicine. Many features will make the material useful for the instructor as well as for the student: all the
