This book is part of a series of monographs on analytical chemistry and its applications. It is divided into two sections, one dealing with the generalities of colorimetric trace analysis and the other treating in much detail specific analyses. In the section dealing with trace analysis are included methods used and precautions to be observed, the general methods employed in separation and isolation of trace elements, the use of colorimetry and spectrophotometry in the analysis of trace elements and a brief discussion of the commoner colorimetric reagents used in trace analysis.

The second section of the book is divided into 45 chapters, each of which is devoted to a particular element or class of elements. Most of these chapters include specific methods for the separation from possible contaminants of the element being discussed, several alternate methods for the determination of the element and, finally, a section on various special applications.
