Chemistry at the British Association

    Article metrics


    AN unusually large number of chemists attended the meeting, and in consequence very many papers, some of considerable importance, were read before the section. Chief interest attached to the discussions, which were well supported and of real value; it is worthy of consideration whether it be not advisable to devote the programme almost entirely to these. On no other occasion is it possible to have what may be termed “borderland problems” discussed conjointly with representatives of other sciences.
