This self-teaching lab manual presents a process for learning descriptive chemistry in the format of a scheme of analysis. Readers are challenged to call upon their manipulative and observational skills to provide the basis for identifying a substance or a mixture of substances. Describes the strategy of qualitative analysis so that readers have a review of the principles readily available when they are engaged in the details of laboratory work. Presents the concepts involved in qualitative analysis, systematically dealing with the nature of the chemical compounds. Features well-tested analytical procedures. Provides an early introduction to the principles of “green chemistry.” Includes a list of required equipment and a list of all reagents used with directions for preparing all solutions. A self-teaching manual useful for anyone who wants to learn more about chemistry in the laboratory.

A self-teaching lab manual on qualitative analysis.From the Back Cover:
Semimicro Qualitative Analysis, Eighth Edition, addresses two important current issues in chemistry education: the need for students to acquire a knowledge of descriptive chemistry and a growing interest by teaching chemists to expose students to the concepts of "green chemistry."
Although descriptive chemistry may be difficult to define precisely, most chemists would agree that a major component of this subject—descriptive chemistry—is the chemistry of the more common elements and their compounds, especially as this occurs in aqueous solutions.
"Green chemistry," briefly, is an expression of doing chemistry—laboratory work—that minimizes the use of chemicals, uses benign solvents (like water); and attends to the problems of handling "wastes" in a non-polluting way.
The first part of this classic work discusses the general strategy of qualitative analysis. It then systematically surveys the nature of chemical compounds including ionic, covalent and coordination of compounds, and the chemical reactions they undergo.
The second part provides a series of laboratory experiments to perform that have been tested over time, and reviewed to insure current treatment in terms of chemical safety and disposal. Key chemical concepts are highlighted along with important safety information. The discussion in Part I provides a firm foundation for understanding the practical work carried out in Part II.
