Allen's Commercial Organic Analysis


WITH the publication of the tenth volume of “Alien's Commercial Organic Analysis”, the fifth edition of this comprehensive work is completed. A decade has passed since the issue of the first volume of this edition and, in the interval, many branches of applied chemistry have increased in importance; even now a part of this edition is out of date, especially for data contained in the volumes published so far back as 1924 or 1925. The editor has taken advantage of the issue of this final volume to include a number of subjects of recent technical importance, so that there is no definite connecting link between the subject matter of the various chapters. These new sections include such subjects as haemoglobin, albuminoids, vitamins in foodstuffs, hormones and special wood charcoals. A section on fibroids in a former edition has now been extended and includes a large amount of data on natural and artificial silk, furs, hairs and wool. Pectin substances have been given special consideration and the qualitative and quantitative examination of such substances is considered.
