Analytical Methods for Certain Metals Including Cerium, Thorium, Molybdenum, Tungsten, Radium, Uranium, Vanadium, Titanium and Zirconium

Description: From Introduction: "This chapter indicates the methods of determining several of the alloy metals when occurring together in the same sample. Most materials seldom contain more than two or three of these elements, but considerable time may be saved if determinations can be combined. Details of the analyses and separations are not given here, as they have been covered more fully in other chapters. Whenever possible, reference is made to the particular chapter. Only sufficient directions have been given to outline the method of procedure, actual conditions for the separations being presented on other pages."
