The object of this book is threefold: first, to furnish students of pharmacy with a systematic course covering the quantitative chemical and physical methods official in The United States Pharmacopeia and The National Formulary through the selection and explanation of typical procedures; second, to classify the large number of official procedures according to type methods of analysis for effective and convenient instruction; and third, to present some of the generally applicable, nonofficial methods of analysis that are widely used in pharmacy and with which all students pursuing the profession should be familiar. In seeking to attain all three objectives the theory and practice of analytical chemistry as applied in quantitative pharmaceutical procedures have been correlated. Secondary objectives have been to adhere closely to unity of subject matter, to place emphasis on the accuracy and proper technique required in good analytical and pharmaceutical practice, to present type methods in an orderly sequence leading from relatively simple to complex procedures, and to avoid expansion of the book to unwieldy size by inclusion.
