The Chemistry of Synthetic Drugs


    VERY few changes have been made in this work since the first edition, reviewed in NATURE for September 21, 1911, was published. The third edition, which is now issued, follows closely on the heels of the second, and, indeed, the publication of information gained during the war in the chemistry of poisons, irritants, etc., appears to constitute the greater part of the alterations which have been made. The poisonous nature of most poly-nitro-compounds has been completely established, and new facts relating to other toxic substances, such as phosgene and mustard gas, which were used by the belligerents are recorded. The volume will no doubt be found extremely useful by those engaged in the manufacture of synthetic drugs.
