Microscale chemistry experiments use small quantities of chemicals and simple equipment. These have the advantages of reducing costs, reducing safety hazards and allowing many experiments to be done quickly and sometimes outside of the laboratory. Microscale Chemistry is a book of such experiments, designed for use in schools and colleges. The ideas behind the experiments in it come from many sources, including chemistry teachers from all around the world.
