Part I11 of the monograph describes the apparatus needed
for spectrometric titrations and the electrochemical and
spectrometric techniques involved.
The appendix contains the EDIA program which the authors recommend for use with a personal computer to evaluate relative pK-values (ApK), together with the TIFIT program for iterative curve fitting and statistical analysis of
The authors have set out to critically evaluate the published work on spectrometric titrations which is widely scattered throughout the literature, and to present this in a clear
and easily assimilated form, amplified by results from their
own research in this area.
Perhaps it would be possible in a subsequent edition to
include more detail on methods for determining points of
inflection and stationary points, and measuring the true positions of shoulders in titration curves by repeated differentiation.
The care which has gone into the preparation of the figures, which are excellent from both a visual and a didactic
standpoint, deserves special mention, as also does the overall
quality of production and presentation. This monograph can
be warmly recommended to everyone involved in studying
equilibria and seeking a review of the current state of knowledge in this area. The literature references listed at the end of
each chapter provide a very useful aid to further, more detailed, reading. Although it is pleasing to note that the publishers, notwithstanding the excellent quality of printing and
production, have managed to keep the price down to
DM 0.45 per page, one regrets that not all the students of
chemistry, physics, biochemistry etc. with an interest in the
topic will be able to afford the book. However, it deserves a
place in all university libraries and relevant research laboratories.

Methods for the Oxidation of Organic Compounds - Alcohols,
Alcohol Derivatives, Alkyl Halides, Nitroalkanes, Alkyl
Azides, Carbonyl Compounds, Hydroxyarenes and Aminoarenes. (Series: Best Synthetic Methods, Vol. 8). By A . H.
Haines. Academic Press, London 1988. xx, 467 pp., hardcover, 5 69.50. - ISBN 0-12-31 5502-9
Series such as “Organic Synthesis”, “Organic Reactions”,
or “Reagents for Organic Synthesis”, or more recently computerized data banks of information on reactions, provide
the synthetic chemist with information about preparative
methods which he needs for solving problems of synthesis.
Nevertheless, difficulties often arise from the fact that it is
not always easy to find the required information on chemical
reactions, or to decide on the best method of carrying out the
search. The series “Best Synthetic Methods”, of which the
present book has been published as Volume 8, is intended for
both advanced students and experienced chemists. It aims to
provide them with overviews and critical evaluations, practical advice, and representative examples of important preparative methods, together with guidance on choosing the best
one for the purpose. The author, who has already contributed the second volume of the series on methods for oxidation
of hydrocarbons, has succeeded in meeting the aims of the
series, with the result that this volume too does justice to the
general title “Best Synthetic Methods”.

A major reason for the success of the volume is the orderly
and consistent arrangement of the material according to the
degree of oxidation of the educts. Each of the seven chapters
is further subdivided according to the reagents used. Since
many of the methods described are not restricted to a single
class of compounds, cross-references are provided to other
chapters in which the same reagents are mentioned, thus
providing the reader with additional guidance. The longest
chapter is that on the oxidation of alcohols to carbonyl compounds and carboxylic acids, in accordance with the importance of these classes of compounds. Each of the methods
described in this chapter is prefaced by a general introduction on “Scope and Limitations”. Advantages and disadvantages compared with other reagents are pointed out, and the
numerous variants of one basic method which exist in many
cases are compared. Discussions of reaction mechanisms,
including questions of reactivity, selectivity and stereochemistry provide the reader with additional information to help
in deciding whether a method is suitable in a particular case.
Each sub-section contains examples of detailed preparative recipes in which the theory is applied to optimizing the
practical results. Most of these are carefully worked out
methods which have proved themselves in the exacting area
of natural products syntheses.
The clarity and thoroughness of the experimental details
contribute to the relative ease with which even those with
limited experience can repeat the preparations. Each sub-section is completed by a comprehensive list of references which
includes both review articles and important original papers.
However, the policy of describing only fully proven methods
reduces the topicality of the coverage. The later chapters of
the book deal with oxidation reactions which are of less
importance from the organic chemistry standpoint. However, the author’s balanced and careful treatment of this material succeeds in also providing the user of the book with a
useful account of these classes of compounds and the methods of oxidizing them.
Tables at the end of the book provide a summary of all the
topics covered. These list in a clear form the educts, reaction
conditions, products, yields and key literature references,
enabling the reader to quickly see the main features at a

Colloid Chemistry of Polymers. By Y. S . Lipatov. Elsevier,
Amsterdam 1988. ix, 460 pp., hard cover, $155.25.ISBN 0-444-43006-7
This book by Y. S . Lipatov is the seventh volume in an
ongoing series with the title “Polymer Science Library”,
which is published by Elsevier with A . D. Jenkins as consulting editor. The main topics of this volume are the microheterogeneity of polymer melts, the morphology of phaseseparated systems, the colloidal aspects of polymeric systems, and the importance of interfacial properties in such
systems. The main emphasis is on the thermodynamic treatment of the colloid chemistry of polymer systems.
The volume consists of 13 chapters, the first of which is a
general introduction to colloid chemistry, especially as applied to dispersed colloidal polymer systems; the aims and
methods of investigations of such systems are also described.
Chapter 2 is concerned with the microheterogeneous structure of polymeric one- and multicomponent systems, with
