Untersuchung und Nachweis organischer Farbstoffe auf spektroskopischem Wege

Nature volume 81, page 37 (08 July 1909) | Download Citation



THE first edition of this work appeared in 1901 in a single volume. In part i. of the new edition which is now before us, subject-matter to which only forty-two pages were devoted in the first edition has been elaborated and added to so largely that it occupies the whole of part i. The introduction deals with spectroscopic methods in general, but more particularly with absorption spectra of coloured solutions and the influence of solvents, concentration, reagents, temperature, &c., on the latter. Then follow chapters on the spectroscope, general observations on the relationship between colour, absorption, fluorescence, and constitution of coloured compounds and dyestuffs, and on the relationship between chemical constitution and absorption spectra of dyestuffs belonging to individual classes. The latter include di- and tri-phenylmethane dye-stuffs, quinonimide dyestuffs, fluorindene and tri-phendioxazine, acridine dyestuffs, and anthraquinone dyestuffs. No mention is made in this part of the azo-dyes, or the dyes of the indigo group, while of natural dyestuffs only alizarin is mentioned. It is to be presumed, however, that these important classes will receive due consideration in part ii., which represents the practical part of the work.
