How molality and normality mutually transform one another

Quantitative Analysis Textbook

The 8th American edition of the world's most widespread textbook on quantitative analysis is now published for the second time in an edited form as a German translation. It introduces the theoretical basics of analytical chemistry and repeatedly makes references to the application in the laboratory. The particular importance of analytics for the entire field of chemistry and for bio, environmental and material sciences is emphasized with emphasis. In addition to fluently written texts and clear graphics, there are small digressions with interesting application examples, brief descriptions of experiments, summarizing sections to recapitulate what has been learned and countless exercises with partly detailed, partly concise answers. All modern techniques are dealt with on the cutting edge of device development.

As an author, Daniel C. Harris knows how to use his original writing style to transfer his enthusiasm for analytical chemistry to the students.

Over 600 literature citations from mostly easily accessible and didactically excellent sources are a valuable enrichment for further deepening the material. Additional tutorials and worksheets can be found on the English-language website (link at

The "Harris" is not only a good companion through the chemistry studies from the beginning to the exam, but is also particularly suitable for all scientific, medical and technical "minor subjects", who in this book a lot of interesting and worth knowing about the interdisciplinary field of find analytical chemistry.
