This comprehensive lab companion provides enough theory to help students understand how and why an operation works, but emphasizes the practical aspects of an operation to help them perform the operation successfully in the lab. The new 4th edition contains a new introductory section, ldquo;Chemistry and the Environment,rdquo; which includes a discussion of the principles of green chemistry. Several green experiments have been added, and some experiments from the previous editions have been revised to make them greener.
