PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION THE two chief additions which have now been made are the Sodium Carbonate-Zinc Method as an alternative to Lassaigne's Sodium Fusion Method for detecting elements in organic com- pounds, and the Tables of Physical Constants which have been included in the Appendix. These Tables have been compiled to cover a very much wider scope of organic compounds than those described in this book. In addition to the general utility of these Tables, we hope that they will be of value to students wishing to extend their practice in the identification of organic compounds beyond the range given in Part III of this book. This range has been deliberately limited in order to enable students to obtain a firm grasp of the methods of identifying

Unformatted text preview: simple compounds, and these methods have therefore been based almost entirely on chemical reactions alone. When the range of organic compounds to be identified is extended, and particularly when higher homologues are being investigated, identification by the physical properties of derivatives becomes increasingly necessary, and the Tables of Physical Constants should con-siderably facilitate this extension. We wish to express our gratitude to the chemists who have made suggestions with regard to the subject-matter of this book: many of these suggestions have now been incorporated in this edition. W r e would warmly welcome further suggestions for improving its contents. F.G.M. B.C.S....
