Organische Synthesen (Organic Syntheses)

Nature volume 140, page 486 (18 September 1937) | Download Citation



IN the collected volume (1932) of the first nine annual volumes of "Organic Syntheses" (1921–31), several improvements were incorporated. New processes for several compounds were included, the descriptions of experimental procedure were enriched with small but important improvements, and indexes to reactions, substances and processes were provided. Such small but highly useful improvements as the statement of amounts of corrosive liquids and solvents in cubic centimetres as well as grams made a considerable difference in the practical utility of the volume. The descriptions are very full and references are given to the literature.
