EDITED BY SIR WILLIAM RAMSAY, K.C.B., F.R.S.
The progress of Physical Chemistry is now so rapid, its domain is so extensive, and the number of journals devoted to its exposition is so great, that it has appeared desirable to issue a series of volumes, each of moderate compass, and each dealing with one branch of the subject. The rate of advance in various branches of the subject is not equal; while, for example, the basis of the science remains comparatively stationary (for methods of determining atomic and molecular weights, and the classification of compounds undergoes little modification), rapid progress is being made in other branches. Hence it has been thought proper to issue several short manuals, so that each individual one may be frequently brought up to date, independently of others. In this way, a statement of what is known on each subject will be made accessible to students and investigators. The subject has been divided as follows, among the authors mentioned :AN INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY.

The present volume deals with the general theory of electrochemistry. This is divided into two parts, one giving the relation between quantity of electricity and quantity of chemical action; the other and more recent part forms the pendant to the first by giving the relation between electromotive force and intensity of chemical action. These subjects are dealt with in Chapters I. and III. Chapter II. is in the nature of an appendix to the first chapter, and may be omitted by those who are not interested in pure chemistry, without detriment to the continuity of the book.
In a subsequent volume it is hoped to discuss the most important applications of the theory, to primary and secondary cells, to electrolysis, and to the solution of chemical problems.
