For students, DIY hobbyists, and science buffs, who can no longer get real chemistry sets, this one-of-a-kind guide explains how to set up and use a home chemistry lab, with step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments in basic chemistry -- not just to make pretty colors and stinky smells, but to learn how to do real lab work: Purify alcohol by distillation Produce hydrogen and oxygen gas by electrolysis Smelt metallic copper from copper ore you make yourself Analyze the makeup of seawater, bone, and other common substances Synthesize oil of wintergreen from aspirin and rayon fiber from paper Perform forensics tests for fingerprints, blood, drugs, and poisons and much more From the 1930s through the 1970s, chemistry sets were among the most popular Christmas gifts, selling in the millions. But two decades ago, real chemistry sets began to disappear as manufacturers and retailers became concerned about liability. ,em>The Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments steps up to the plate with lessons on how to equip your home chemistry lab, master laboratory skills, and work safely in your lab. The bulk of this book consists of 17 hands-on chapters that include multiple laboratory sessions on the following topics: Separating Mixtures Solubility and Solutions Colligative Properties of Solutions Introduction to Chemical Reactions & Stoichiometry Reduction-Oxidation (Redox) Reactions Acid-Base Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Chemical Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Principle Gas Chemistry Thermochemistry and Calorimetry Electrochemistry Photochemistry Colloids and Suspensions Qualitative Analysis Quantitative Analysis Synthesis of Useful Compounds Forensic Chemistry With plenty of full-color illustrations and photos, Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments offers introductory level sessions suitable for a middle school or first-year high school chemistry laboratory course, and more advanced sessions suitable for students who intend to take the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry exam. A student who completes all of the laboratories in this book will have done the equivalent of two full years of high school chemistry lab work or a first-year college general chemistry laboratory course. This hands-on introduction to real chemistry -- using real equipment, real chemicals, and real quantitative experiments -- is ideal for the many thousands of young people and adults who want to experience the magic of chemistry.

Over 1,200 total pages .... Parasitic infection can greatly interfere with a soldier's ability to complete his mission. The presence of parasites in a soldier's system can not only interfere with his ability to function, but also can make him susceptible to certain diseases. Since soldiers may serve in most areas of the world, you must be able to identify parasites that are found in the various parts of the globe. In your job as a medical laboratory specialist, you will perform a variety of test procedures on samples taken from humans. Some of these samples will include feces and tissue scrapings used in the diagnosis and treatment of parasitic infection. Therefore, you must be knowledgeable in several areas of parasitology. The knowledge you will need is reflected in the two subcourses you are about to study. Subcourses Parasitology I and Parasitology II address areas of particular importance in parasitology. The whole purpose of clinical laboratory procedures is to provide the clinician doing diagnostic work with specific information needed to round out his picture of the disorders he has observed in the patient. Clinical bacteriology can contribute its part by supplying data about the microscopic life involved and the susceptibility of such life to particular drugs. To identify bacterial growth, you must take certain steps that will enable you, through a process of elimination, to choose the microscopic form that fits the findings you have obtained. Steps that are often essential include: 1. Observing the type of growth when first isolated on culture media. 2 Making a microscopic examination on stained material from an isolated culture of that colony. 3. Performing various tests to obtain a list of the characteristics of the organism. 4. Making a complete identification of the organism. This subcourse was developed to prepare and sustain your mathematical skills as a Medical Laboratory Specialist. The emphasis is upon computations related to solutions and their concentrations. If you feel that you need a more basic review of mathematics before taking this subcourse, you should request Subcourse Basic Mathematics, which covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers; decimals, and fractions; and conversions to and from the metric system. In the process of achieving and maintaining proficiency in your military occupational specialty (MOS), you will be learning concepts and performing tasks that are based on important chemical principles. As you become more proficient with these principles, you may reach the point where you will not need to give them much conscious thought. Meanwhile, however, you should study this subcourse to gain a working knowledge of the fundamental principles of chemistry. Subcourse Clinical Chemistry I, provides you with a background in the laboratory basics of clinical chemistry. Laboratory safety; collection, preservation, and shipment of specimens; measurement of weights and volumes; introduction to quality control; and introduction to organic chemistry are presented in this subcourse.
