This is largely a laboratory manual with some theoretical discussion based on elementary courses given to medical students at the University of Edinburgh. The text is divided as follows: some fundamental scientific ideas, practical methods, general and physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry— the latter including some compounds of biologic importance. Many phases of these branches of chemistry and many individual products are touched on briefly but with little elaboration, which was the declared intention of the author. A sentence or two is added to explain the medical value of each product.
