Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued. The current list of Specialist Periodical Reports can be seen on the inside flap of this volume.
Have you ever wondered what is so special about homemade soaps? Well, the best thing is that they are not made in bulk, and could be customized as per your choice and preferences. The usual soaps that we buy from markets are packed with chemicals and synthetic substances. They may harm our skin and even cause allergies. Every ingredient might not suit your skin. Some may cause reactions. Everybody has different skin types. So what suits one person may not go well with others. It is only when you try and test that you will come to know the results. Another aspect is the fragrance. Everyone has personal choices for the smell of the soap too. And the market bought soaps often come with high price tags. All these might make you rethink the next time you go to the store to purchase your soaps. And what probably do you think is the most effective and easy solution for these problems? Yes, it is to make your own soaps at the comfort of your home.
