Weighed in the Balance: History of the Laboratory of the Government Chemist

 
9780115153020: Weighed in the Balance: History of the Laboratory of the Government Chemist

The Laboratory of the government Chemist was founded in 1842, at a time when official Government interest in science was minimal, 150 years later it has become one of the most modern analytical laboratories in the world. This is the first comprehensive history of the work and development of the Laboratory, but is more than just an institutional history. It shows the human side of development, gives an interesting picture of the scientific and social developments outside and illustrates, to a large extent, the growth in scientific support of health, environmental and revenue protection in Britain.
