The LABORATORY HANDBOOK FOR GENERAL CHEMISTRY helps students perform their laboratory work more effectively, efficiently, and safely. It is not a compilation of experimental procedures, but rather, throughout three editions, it remains a "how-to" guide containing specific information about the basic equipment, techniques, and operations that are necessary for successful laboratory experiments. The importance of laboratory safety is stressed. Video demonstrations of a number of common laboratory techniques are an important feature of this Third Edition.
The Handbook can be used in conjunction with CER modular experiments, to support locally written experiments, or to complement the techniques sections of commercial lab manuals.
