This new edition of an excellent work on the microanalysis of metals is about 50% larger than the second edition which appeared nine years ago. The text has been expanded about equally throughout, which indicates an increased application of microanalysis of metals as well as an increase in the available techniques of separation and colorimetric determination. The first four chapters are devoted to the theory of colorimetric trace metal analysis; the separation techniques such as precipitation, chromatography, and extraction; colored complex formations; and color determination. The remainder of the book is divided into chapters which cover the analysis of individual metals. The available methods of metal analysis are discussed and the preferred methods are presented in detail. The applications of these methods are dealt with in a discussion of the modifications necessary for separation and isolation from different mediums. Of interest to the investigator in medical fields are the sections
