In selecting suitable thermometers for the use of students in General Organic Chemistry, it is often found that the ordinary chemical thermometers on the market at moderate prices have a number of defects. Some of these are as follows: 1. Graduation lines too close together, making reading difficult. 2. Lack of sufficient accuracy. 3. Stems too large, causing difficulty when more than one hole must be bored through a small cork.
