GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES.
DURING the past few years the civiMsed world has begun to realise the
advantages accruing to scientific research, with the result that an everincreasing
amount of time and thought is being devoted to various
branches of science.
No study has progressed more rapidly than chemistry. This
science may be divided roughly into several branches : namely, Organic,
Physical, Inorganic, and Analytical Chemistry. It is impossible to
write any single text-book which shall contain within its two covers a
thorough treatment of &ny one of these branches, owing to the vast
amount of information that has been accumulated. The need is rather
for a series of text-books dealing more or less comprehensively with
each branch of chemistry. This has already been attempted by
enterprising firms, so far as physical and analytical chemistry are
concerned; and the present series is designed to meet the needs of
inorganic chemists. One great advantage of this procedure lies in
the fact that our knowledge of the different sections of science does not
progress at the same rate. Consequently, as soon as any particular
part advances out of proportion to others, the volume dealing with
that section may be easily revised or rewritten as occasion requires.
Some method of classifying the elements for treatment in this way
is clearly essential, and we have adopted the Periodic Classification
with slight alterations, devoting a whole volume to the consideration
of the elements in each vertical column, as will be evident from a glance
at the scheme in the Frontispiece.
In the first volume, in addition to a detailed account of the elements
of Group 0, the general principles of Inorganic Chemistry are discussed.
Particular pains have been taken in the selection of material for this
volume, and an attempt has been made to present to the reader a
clear account of the principles upon which our knowledge of modern
Inorganic Chemistry is based.
At the outset it may be well to explain that it was not intended
to write a complete text-book of Physical Chemistry. Numerous
excellent works have already been devoted to this subject, and 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, our aim
has been to emphasise 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 in Volume I. 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.
