Die Konstitution des Kamphers und seiner wichtigsten Derivate

Nature volume 68, pages 293294 (30 July 1903) | Download Citation



THE chemistry of camphor and its derivatives has occupied the attention of chemists for many years, and has now become so specialised that it is almost impossible for the ordinary chemist to keep up with the immense amount of research published in the journals devoted to chemistry. The monograph by Prof. Aschan is accordingly very welcome, and will be found useful not only by the non-camphor chemist, but also by the camphor specialist. The treatment of the subject is purely theoretical, and in that respect differs from the valuable paper “On the Constitution of Camphor ”read at the British Association in 1900 by Dr. Lapworth.
