WITH the enormous output of original literature in science, it is practically impossible for the scientific worker to keep in touch with more than a very limited field of inquiry. In this book a successful attempt has been made to collect and arrange in accessible form the latest reliable information on various sections of organic chemistry applied to analysis. As indicated by the editor, the aim has been to give a brief critical summary of the literature up to a decade ago. Although this volume is called “Organic Chemistry”, a considerable amount of important information on physical chemistry is included; for example, a very thorough review is given on the applications of the polarimeter in sugar analyses, on purification by electrodialysis, on condensation of gases, etc. From that period onwards, progress has been dealt with more fully, and concise working details of new methods are given.
