Publisher Comments:

If you haven't run into the problem yet, you will. You'll be reading some old chemical formula calling for mirbane oil, salt of satum, or liver of sulphur. A quick check of this handy list of chemical terms would tell you that you need nitrobenzene, lead acetate, or potassium sulphide.

What we did was enter into our computer two thousand chemical equivalents gleaned from a variety of chemistry textbooks, industrial references, and formularies in our reference library dating back to the early 1800's. The computer merged and sorted the lists into alphabetical order. The result is a chemical cross reference.

We have kept unusual and probably incorrect spellings. We have made no attempt to verify that the definitions are correct. What we have done is provide you with one master list of the best equivalents we could find.
