Reports of the Progress of Applied Chemistry

Article metrics


IT is, perhaps, scarcely necessary to remark that, although these excellent annual reports are written by chemists and chemical engineers, they find many readers beyond the confines of the profession. While much of the information which they contain is admittedly of purely chemical interest and value, one cannot easily divorce chemistry from physics, engineering, or biology, and there is much which cannot fail to interest medical men, economists, and indeed all who have a lively concern in the more important phases of scientific industry. Any one volume is much the same in form as its predecessor, but considerable variations in substance in fact arise from such changes in authorship as occur from time to time.
