About the Authors
  • In the only up-to-date book concerning high vacuum systems for chemists, Plesch describes the fundamental principles and construction techniques of this important method of isolating air-sensitive chemicals from the atmosphere. The intent of this instructional book is to enable chemists to decide whether high vacuum techniques (HVT) can benefit them and if so, how they can construct and implement an HV system. While other books on the subject have dealt only with metal HV systems for physicists, this unique approach to the glass HV system is intended for chemists in every branch of the field.

    "...a very useful addition to the bookshelf and one which, by advocating simplicity of operation, will give the reader confidence to use high vacuum systems in dealing with air-sensitive compounds..." Chemistry in Britain
