Review Text

"This magnum opus is packed with carefully researched, up-to-date facts and figures. To the best of this author's knowledge, it has no single equal.This book's strengths are its choice of topics, the breadth and depth of information, its organization and easy access to information, and extensive current literature references.Summing up: Highly recommended." --CHOICE, August 2013

"This monograph remains the bible for practising chemists... (It) will be the most commonly used reference book in any chemical or biochemical laboratory." --MDPI

Review quote

This monograph remains the bible for practising chemists wishing to know how to dry solvents or purify commercially available laboratory chemicals...The authors have made good use of computerised databases for up to date information and have placed a noticeable emphasis on safety. It is of manageable size and, like its forebears, will be the most commonly used reference book in any chemical or biochemical laboratory. - Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI)

About W. L. F. Armarego

Wilfred L. F. Armarego graduated BSc (Hons) in 1953 and PhD from the University of London in 1956 and came to Australia in that year. After two years at the Central Research Laboratories (ICIANZ) in Melbourne, where he worked on plant growth substances, and one year on potentially carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons at the University of Melbourne as Senior Demonstrator in Organic Chemistry, he joined the Department of Medical Chemistry as a Research Fellow in 1960. He became a Fellow in 1963 and was awarded a DSc degree (London) in 1968. He was promoted to Senior Fellow in 1967 and began research work on the biochemistry and molecular biology of pteridine-requiring enzymes related to the inherited metabolic disease phenylketonuria and its variants. He was head of the Protein Biochemistry Group and Pteridine Biochemistry Laboratory until his retirement in 1996. He is now a visiting fellow at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, and member of the editorial boards of `Medicinal Research Reviews' and `Pteridines' journals.
