The Chemistry of Organic Cyanogen Compounds

Article metrics


THE American Chemical Society was wise in devoting N, 105 in its monograph series to organic cyanegen compounds, for they find ever-increasing application, both in research and in technology. Indeed, the review may even be overdue, for Dr. V. Migrdichian has found it necessary to restrict himself rigidly to the reactions of organic cyanides. Thus, the physico-chemical attributes of the group find no mention, and preparative methods for even the most important nitriles are summarily dismissed, sometimes, unfortunately, with obsolete methods.
