THE INDISPENSABLE REFERENCE FOR ANYONE WORKING IN THE CHEMICAL PROCESS INDUSTRIES—NOW UPDATED AND EXPANDED TO TAKE YOU INTO THE 21ST CENTURY

The best-selling Chemical Technicians' Ready Reference Handbook is the definitive reference on laboratory safety, analytical procedures, and instrumentation techniques for the modern chemical laboratory. Hailed in three previous editions for its scope and depth of coverage and concise, step-by-step directions for performing virtually every laboratory task, the Handbook remains the undisputed classic in the field. Revised to reflect the latest developments in operational procedures for today's sophisticated chemical technologies, the Fourth Edition features:

* Up-to-date information on the role of chemical laboratory technicians and chemical process operators in industry

* Current data on laboratory safety, chemical waste disposal, government regulations, and ISO-9000

* New and expanded chapters on laboratory statistics, computers in the laboratory, thermal analysis techniques, and electrophoresis

* Expanded step-by-step procedures for laboratory instrumentation, including chromatographic separation techniques and spectrophotometric methods

* Coverage of classic wet methods such as gravimetric and volumetric analysis, Karl Fischer water determinations, and Kjeldahl nitrogen.

The Chemical Technicians' Ready Reference Handbook continues to be the best place to turn for the procedures, techniques, an formulas used in the modern chemical laboratory.
