The book provides a concise and handy reference guide to the numerous recipes for the making up of chemical solutions used in laboratories. It is intended for the laboratory worker in industry and in research as well as in teaching institutions. The majority of bench solution are common to chemistry, biology and other laboratories. To avoid duplication, the reader is cross-referred from one section to another, for instructions on the making up of such solutions. The book has been divided into chapters in which preparation of one particular use, or related uses are grouped together alphabetically. Where appropriate the uses of the solution are stated and cross-reference made. The comprehensive index includes both the names and uses of the solutions covered, and a list of further references is provided. It is hoped that the book will be useful to teaching institutions at UG/PG level, Laboratory worker in Industries as well as those involved in research.
