Excerpt from A Text-Book of Inorganic Chemistry, Vol. 1: Part I.-An Introduction to Modern Inorganic Chemistry; Part II.-The Inert Gases
The preparation of this Introductory Part has proved to be a task of peculiar difficulty. At the outset we would emphasise the fact that ou... r aim has not been to write a complete text-book of Physical Chemistry. Numerous excellent works have already been devoted to this subject, and we felt that a volume on such lines would scarcely serve as a suitable introduction to this series. Whilst Physical Chemistry deals with the general principles applied to all branches Of theoretical chemistry, we have been desirous of emphasising their application to Inorganic Chemistry, with which branch of the subject this series of text-books is exclusively concerned. To this end practically all the illustrations to the laws and principles discussed deal with inorganic substances.
Again, there are many subjects, such as the methods employed in the accurate determination of atomic weights, which are not generally regarded as forming part Of Physical Chemistry. Yet these are subjects of supreme importance to the student Of Inorganic Chemistry, and are accordingly included in this Introduction.
We have attempted in the opening chapter to present to the reader a concise account of the Fundamental Laws upon which the modern study of Inorganic Chemistry rests, and to show how they have been confirmed by modern experimental research. In the two succeeding chapters the general Properties of Elements and Compounds are discussed, whilst Chapter IV. Is devoted to the study of the various methods of determining Molecular Weights and the discussion of the values sometimes Obtained. Chemical Change and the Properties of Acids, Bases, and Salts form the subject-matter of Chapters V. And VI.
