The Chemical Age Year Book, Diary and Directory, 1927

Nature volume 119, page 275 (19 February 1927) | Download Citation



IN addition to a very convenient diary, this book contains information of special interest to the chemist. Short notices are given of such subjects as research organisations, chemical and allied societies, patenting of invention, use of industrial chemicals, trade name of dye-stuff intermediates, certain stock-exchange prices, etc. Various tables of constants and chemical data are included. A chemical directory and a number of trade advertisements form a large part of the volume. At the present time there are so many excellent collections of physical and chemical constants available that the advisability of including such information, especially in an abridged form as in this diary, may be doubted. On the whole, however, the material selected for inclusion takes up only a small portion of the book, and the data may have definite value in special circumstances. The binding and general appearance of the book are excellent. This may partly justify the price, which is rather high compared with that of diaries generally.
