ONE is accustomed to anticipate with some eagerness the publication of the annual reports on pure and applied chemistry by the Chemical Society and the Society of Chemical Industry, respectively. The eleventh volume (1926) of the latter series will occasion no disappointment. In fact, it is unusually comprehensive; it is readable and yet as full as ever of catalogued information, and, moreover, it has appeared promptly. It is not surprising that constant reference is made to the impression left by last year's dispute in the coal-mining industry on the progress of applied chemistry; however, the difficulties of that period have at least focussed attention on fuel economy, on more fruitful ways of using coal, and on the possibility of meeting future demands for liquid fuel.

Reports of the Progress of Applied Chemistry, issued by the Society of Chemical Industry.

Vol. 11, 1926. Pp. 742. (London: The Society of Chemical Industry, 46 Finsbury Square, E.C.2, 1927.) 12s. 6d.: 10s. to Fellows of the Chemical Society, or 7s. 6d. to members of the Society of Chemical Industry.
