The Sceptical Chymist are the Best Book on Chemistry.
Monumental classic by the founder of modern chemistry is essential for undergraduate students. First explicit statement of law of conservation of matter in chemical change; first modern list of chemical elements; more. Facsimile reprint of original (1790) Kerr translation. Introduction by Professor Douglas McKie.
The standard work "Food and Dietetics" by Dr. R. Hutchison is recommended for those who want to thoroughly research the science of eating (E. Arnold, 16s.). Dr. Alexander Haig has diligently and completely investigated how purin bodies can cause sickness. Students are advised to read his broader work on "Uric Acid" or "Uric Acid, a summary of the subject" (J. & A. Churchhill, 1904, 2s.6d.). "The Purin Bodies of Food Stuffs," by Dr. I. Walker Hall, provides an excellent scientific account of investigations on purins, their chemical and pathological qualities, and the levels in meals (Sherratt & Hughes, Manchester, 1903, 4s.6d.).
Hillyer, however, finds this theory to be completely illogical (Journ. Amer. Chem. Soc., 1903, 524). He argues that the liberated alkali would be much more likely to recombine with the acid or acid salt from which it has been separated than to saponify a neutral glyceride. In addition, unsaponifiable greasy matter is removed by soap as easily as saponifiable fat, so there can be no question The fact that hydrolysis occurs more readily in cold, diluted solutions than in hot, concentrated ones is still another argument against the notion.
Six lectures on the chemistry and physics of flames that Michael Faraday delivered at the Royal Institution in 1848 under the heading The Chemical History of a Candle were part of the series of Christmas lectures for young people that Faraday established in 1825 and which are still presented there each year. The several zones of combustion in a candle flame and the presence of carbon particles in the luminous zone were discussed in the lectures. These are demonstrations of methods for weighing gases on a balance. The effects of atmospheric pressure are illustrated and described.
Extract from The Skeptical Cymist London after living there for over fourteen years. Boyle dedicated his life to the experimental study of many aspects of natural science, as well as the active practise of a vast and generous compassion. He also wrote and meditated on spiritual topics and acquired Greek and Hebrew so that he could read the Bible in its original languages. He was one of the Royal Society's founders and later served as its president for a while. He was buried in West Minster Abbey after passing away in 1691. Boyle wrote numerous scientific publications in both Latin and English.
