Reviews

Clear and concise on laboratory safety with a good overview of the techniques. Covers experiments, each with an introduction to the chemistry of its element. A-Level teachers could use relevant sections and some experiments. Very good value for money, recommended as a rich source of ideas for practical work., Education in Chemistry
