More About This Textbook


For nearly 40 years, Chemistry in the Laboratory has been meeting the needs of teachers and students. This new edition builds on that legacy while addressing cutting-edge trends in the chemistry laboratory—including forensic chemistry and environmental and green chemistry.

As always, the new edition of Chemistry in the Laboratory offers precise, easy-to-follow instructions, helpful illustrations, and an emphasis throughout on laboratory safety. Again, throughout, a Consider This feature encourages users to expand the principles of the experiment into interesting applications, open-ended experiments, or unexplored corners. Most experiments in the manual can be completed in one lab session, but some can be linked or extended for a multi-lab project.
