Shows chemists, biochemists, and other scientists how to purify
chemical reagents. Overviews physical techniques and chemical methods
currently used for purification in laboratories, with general
procedures for purifying some classes of organic compounds, then
offers alphabetical entries on substances with brief details on how
they can be purified, in chapters on organic, inorganic, and metal-
organic chemicals, and biochemicals and related products. Entries
include literature references. This fourth edition contains new
material on modern reagents and compounds not previously covered, and
more information in entries, such as melting and boiling points,
molecular weights, refractive indexes, and CAS registry numbers.
