Introduction to Quantitative Ultramicroanalysis has been compiled on the basis of reports published by numerous authors. It does not claim to offer an exhaustive treatment of ultramicroanalysis, but it summarizes data on the subject and related experimental methods and techniques, newly designed requisite equipment, etc. Several procedures are described which have proved effective in analyzing minute amounts of sample. The weighing of extremely small objects is treated most extensively, as are the titration and colorimetry of solutions. The equipment used in ultramicroanalysis, in addition to its minute size, is of a highly specialized design. These unique features, as well as some of the simpler micromanipulators, are discussed in the related chapters.
