Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1960. First edition 8vo. 306 pp. Corners and spine ends bumped and worn. Book is creased and bent near the fore-edge. Rubbing to covers. Pages clean, binding very tight. "Whilst a survey of the reactions of an unkown substance enables it to be classified, accurate identification can only be achieved by preparing and examining a suitable derivative. This book summarizes the methods employed and gives practical details for the preparation of such derivatives. It has been designed for laboratory use by final year chemistry students and by research workers of all kinds." Very Good Paperback (Item ID: 57902)
