Trattato di chimica generale ed applicata all' industria


    THE death of Molinari nearly four years ago doubtless accounts for the delay in the completion of the new edition of his “Organic Chemistry”, the first part of which appeared in 1927. The alterations necessary to bring the contents of this second part up-to-date are due to the author's three sons, working in conjunction with Profs. Bargellini and Contardi. The subjects dealt with in the present volume comprise oils, fats, and waxes, carbohydrates, ring compounds, textile fibres, and proteins. The general scheme of the book, with its inclusion of numerous data regarding production, importation and exportation of raw materials and manufactured products, must by this time be generally known to chemists. The only new feature requiring comment is the insertion of large-scale flow sheets of an olive-oil refinery and of a sugar factory. Similar sheets for other processes might with advantage be given in any future edition.
