Reports of the Progress of Applied Chemistry

Naturevolume 140page49 (1937) | Download Citation



THIS volume appears so punctually year by year soon after the end of the period surveyed, and is so consistently full of well-digested reports, that every English-reading chemist must now be fully aware of its value ; indeed, with many its appearance is reckoned an event. One reason for the welcome which always attends its arrival is evident ; for after twelve months' struggle to keep one's head above the flood of chemical literature in which one is even mildly interested, a raft on which one may float awhile and contemplate the scenery is not to be despised. These surveys of progress in the several branches of technological chemistry appeal also to those who, having sufficient chemistry to follow their purport, are however not engaged in the work they describe, and perhaps would not regard themselves as chemists at all.
