About the Book

This Book offers a complete treatment of practical Chemistry to meet the requirement of undergraduate students in Indian universities. The authors have endeavoured to present the basic theory and procedure for each experiment so as to make the student's work in the laboratory methodical and efficient.

College Practical Chemistry is divided into three sections-Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. In the Inorganic Chemistry Section, the qualitative analysis of mixtures containing interfering and insoluble ions is discussed in detail. This section also includes principles and experimental details of volumetric analysis including complexometric titrations and gravimetric estimations.

The Organic Chemistry Section provides detailed procedures for systematic identification of compounds including detection of extra elements, functional groups and preparation of derivatives. The structure, derivatives, preparation and isolation of some organic compounds are presented in tabular form for easy referral. Different chromatographic techniques have also been discussed.

The Physical Chemistry Section contains experiments on all topics in physical chemistry included in the syllabus of Indian universities.
