Reports of the Progress of Applied Chemistry


THIS important annual volume is modelled on the familiar plan of the series and fully maintains the customary high standard. Not only is it almost indispensable to workers in the domain of technological chemistry, but also it offers to other scientific workers, and indeed to many whose work is not scientific at all, an excellent review of progress in one of the greatest of the world's industries. The opening paragraphs of the chapter on fuel, for example, show how the chemist, in effecting economies and developing alternative sources, is quickly brought into contact with reverberations in the form of social problems and the incidence of taxation. It is satisfactory to read that precautions taken in British gas works in regard to waterless gasholders are adequate to prevent another such disastrous explosion as that which occurred in Germany at Neunkirchen.
