  • McWhorter, Zella A. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1915)
    In following the various procedure of Qualitative Analysis the purpose of the operator is to separate, as completely as possible, the substances present and to identify each in its proper order. Experience has shown the ...
  • Hood, Edward P. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1920)
    The acid juice of apples and various other fruits was employed for preparing different medicines before any attempt was made to isolate the acid itself. Free benzoic acid, however, obtained by subliming benzoin, was ...
  • Adams, Marion Vaun (University of Alabama Libraries, 1924)
    Potassium arsenate is a comparatively unknown compound, that is, very little experimental work has been done with it, and since no important use has been found for it no attempt has been made to produce it in large quantities. ...
  • Slaughter, John Robert (University of Alabama Libraries, 1927)
    Aniline was accurately investigated by A. W. Hoffman in 1843. He was able to show that all of the above products are identical and for them he selected Fritsche's name, aniline. His work on the separation of aniline from ...
  • Clements, Ralph Mayo (University of Alabama Libraries, 1927)
    Until recently investigators have considered that results of blood sugar determinations obtained by fermentation and those obtained by copper reduction have been in quantitative agreement, and both of these methods have ...
  • Dougherty, Daniel Vincent (University of Alabama Libraries, 1929)
    The coal tar industry holds a unique position in the industrial world. as it is entirely the outcome of scientific research. The first seed was planted in 182,5 when Faraday discovered benzene, which he obtained from the ...
  • Hanna, Carl (University of Alabama Libraries, 1929)
    Acetic anhydride is a colourless, volatile liquid having an odor like that of glacial acetic acid, but stronger. It is very corrosive and its vapors are extremely irritating to the eyes and lungs. Care should therefore be ...
  • Marsh, Alfred (University of Alabama Libraries, 1929)
    The purpose of this investigation is, therefore, a search for fossil resin substitutes. Natural resins, at present, are often treated to convert them to products that resemble the fossil resins to some extent. Artificial ...
  • Anderson, Ross Eugene (University of Alabama Libraries, 1930)
    It is the purpose of this paper to present some of the more important aspects of the graphite industry, such as countries producing graphite, economic conditions, uses of graphite, and the nature of graphite deposits; and ...
  • Brame, James Yancey (University of Alabama Libraries, 1930)
    The present day synthetic processes for the production of phenol may be attributed, at least, indirectly to fore-runners of our modern school of chemists. Faraday laid open a vast field for scientific research along the ...
  • Gordon, Samuel A. (1930)
    Granting that the ammonium salts of phosphoric acid are desirable as fertilizers, and that their importance in the fertilizer industry is assured, I undertook this series of experiments in January, 1928 with the idea of ...
  • Padula, V. D. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1930)
    The following chapters are devoted to research carried on by the author, in producing sulfur dyes by causing benzene in the vapor phase to react with sulfur heated to above 360 C, and also to sulfur analyses with the Parr ...
  • Hodges, F. A. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1930)
    The use of substances as dye materials began thousands of years ago. We have accounts of Ancients who used dyeing materials for developing colors pleasing to the eye almost as early as the art of leaving written records ...
  • Harwell, F. L. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1931)
    In the past many chemists have been attracted by the inherent possibilities in the oxidation of hydrochloric acid by atmospheric oxygen as a means of evolving chlorine cheaply. It was along this line of thought that such ...
  • McKeown, George Baker (University of Alabama Libraries, 1960)
    A comprehensive investigation of reaction mechanisms of sulfonyl compounds was initiated in this Laboratory in 1949. At that time an insight into these reaction mechanisms was sought by determining the steric requirements ...
  • Taylor, Arthur R. Jr. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1961)
    This dissertation concerns a branch of physical chemistry that began in the era when chemistry was first emerging as a recognized branch of natural philosophy. Antoine Lavoisier, "the father of chemistry," conducted some ...
  • Williams, George C. (University of Alabama Libraries, 1961)
    In an earlier work, rates of reaction of iodide ion with cyclopentylmethyl bromide and cyclohexylmethyl bromide in dry acetone were determined. These two compounds reacted at about the same rate, but there were differences ...
  • Franklin, James C. (University of Alabama, 1962)
    The purpose of the experiments described in this thesis was to prepare certain cyclopropane derivatives by the reaction of 1-ethoxyvinyl acetate with various diazo compounds, and to investigate the behavior of the resulting ...
  • Payne, Lamar Bishop (University of Alabama Libraries, 1962)
    The purpose of this study was to synthesize the p-toluene-sulfates and methanesulfates of cis- and trans-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-1,3-cyclohexanediol and to determine their behavior toward solvolytic and substitution reactions ...
  • Smith, Karl Dee (University of Alabama Libraries, 1973)
    The element scandium has been known for over one hundred years, but its coordination chemistry has been little studied. The lack of attention has been due, in part, to the difficulty of obtaining a pure source of scandium, ...
