Purification of Laboratory Chemicals,
Edition 9 Part 2 Inorganic Chemicals, Catalysts, Biochemicals, Physiologically Active Chemicals, Nanomaterials
By W.L.F. Armarego

Publication Date: 09 Aug 2022

Purification of Laboratory Chemicals: Part Two, Inorganic Chemicals, Catalysts, Biochemicals, Physiologically Active Chemicals, Nanomaterials, Ninth Edition describes contemporary methods for the purification of chemical compounds.  The work includes tabulated methods taken from literature for purifying thousands of individual commercially available chemical substances. To help in applying this information, the more common processes currently used for purification in chemical laboratories and new methods are discussed. For dealing with substances not separately listed, another chapter is included, setting out the usual methods for purifying specific classes of compounds.

Laboratory workers, whether carrying out research or routine work, will invariably need to consult this book. Apart from the procedures described, the large amount of physical data about listed chemicals is essential. This fully updated, revised and expanded new edition includes the purification of many new substances that have been available commercially since 2017, along with previously available substances which have found new applications.

Key Features

  • Features empirical formulae and formula weights for every entry
  • References all important applications of each substance
  • Includes updated CAS registry numbers
  • Covers the latest commercial chemical products, including pharmaceutical chemicals and safety/hazard materials
  • Provides expanded coverage of laboratory/work practices and purification methods
