A concise and handy guide to the numerous "recipes" for chemical solutions used in laboratories.
In each chapter, preparations of one particular use, or related uses, are grouped alphabetically. Where appropriate, the use of the solutions are stated and cross reference made. Should meet most of the everyday requirements of chemistry, physics, biology and engineering laboratories.
