This volume is the fourth in a series on analytical chemistry and its applications. It deals only with those organic reagents used as precipitants for gravimetric and volumetric analysis of inorganic ions.
The book is divided into two sections; namely, "General Discussion" and "Special Reagents." The first section deals largely with the theory of this method of inorganic analysis, discussing the types of salts formed by the different reagents, the various factors influencing salt formation, the structure and stability of the salt formed, the different methods employed in separation of inorganic ions and the general technics involved for a satisfactory analysis of this type.
In contrast to the theoretical considerations in the first division of the book, the second section deals entirely with the practical side of analysis. Each of twelve chapters are devoted to a specific organic reagent or class of reagents, and detailed procedures are given for their
