Summary: This new lab manual for general chemistry courses provides superior microscale experiments that can also help departments to meet the growing problems of cost and disposal. The manual's cost-effective approach makes use of milligram and submilliter quantities of reagents and solvents. A "Cleaning-Up" feature also teaches students about waste disposal and hazardous waste. In addition to being safe, inexpensive, and fast, the experiments provided in this impo
rtant new manual are also unique, carefully worked-out, and highly illustrative of the basic principles of general chemistry.
