About the BookThe book Inorganic Lab Manual provides handy information and necessary guidelines on how to conduct an experiment and write it down. The experiment where calculation is needed, has been presented with expected data and required calculation so as to facilitate understanding by the students.
The book includes qualitative inorganic analysis, separation and identification of cations/anions using paper chromatography, inorganic preparations, volumetric analysis, gravimetric analysis, and estimation of two constituents when present together.
This book has been designed to meet the demands of the students of B.Sc. and those pursuing M.Sc. in Chemistry covering the syllabi of all Indian universities. Its language is simple and easy to follow. Students can perform the experiments themselves and can also learn to write the experiments by following the book. The book contains complete theory, reasoning and reactions involved in each experiment.
In addition, the Appendix provides a list of reagents on students’ shelf and their preparations, a list of reagents on side shelf and their preparations, preparation of indicator solutions, a list of hazardous chemicals and their effects, measures in laboratory, first aid, remedies for a few chemical reagents, etc. The book with all these features will find favour not only with the students but also the teachers and the laboratory assistants.About the Author/sS.
