Organic Syntheses

Nature volume 130, page 419 (17 September 1932) | Download Citation



IN this volume the editors have brought together for the convenience of their fellow-chemists the first nine volumes of “Organic Syntheses”, containing authentic methods for the preparation of 260 substances. In doing this they have not contented themselves with merely rearranging the matter previously published, but have made a large number of relatively minor yet significant corrections, and have incorporated new and improved directions for the preparation of adipic acid, benzilic acid, cyclohexylcarbinol, dibenzoylmethane, d-glutamic acid, glycine, dl-methylethylacetie acid, penta-erythritol, and n-propylbenzene. At the same time the illustrations of apparatus have been re-drawn and the quantities of corrosive liquids and all solvents have been given both in cubic centimetres and in grams.
