Coal Tar Distillation and Working up of Tar Products

Nature volume 113, pages 778779 (31 May 1924) | Download Citation



IN “Coal Tar Distillation” the author has produced a book which will assuredly find a place in the libraries of technologists engaged in the study of the destructive distillation of coal and the working up of by-products. The publishers of this work are serving a most useful purpose in introducing a series of books dealing with the gas and fuel industries, but to keep pace with them entails considerable expense. The third edition of the book under review contains so much additional matter that the two former editions have become of very limited value—a fact which is a little disconcerting when it is realised that a fair proportion of the new matter might have been incorporated in the 1917 edition.
