Excerpt from The Chemistry of Linseed Oil
The Chemistry of Oils is a study of peculiar interest. Not only does it afford a wide field for research by the pure chemist, but it also offers a tempting bait to the industrial or technical chemist. The subject has not received the attention it deserves from the student of chemistry, and.it is hoped that this little monograph will serve to stimulate interest in it. The thoughtful reader cannot peruse these pages without realising what a number of important problems still require elucidation, and teachers seeking suitable subjects for research for their more promising pupils should experience no difficulty in finding them here.
It is of course impossible to deal with the subject as thoroughly as one could wish within the restricted limits of a small monograph, but explanatory notes and full references are given, which, it is hoped, will prove a useful feature of the work. In almost every case the original memoirs have been consulted, and in this connection the Author desires to express his sincere thanks to Mr F.W. C.Clifford, Librarian of the Chemical Society, for his unfailing courtesy and assistance. To the Editor, Dr Alex. C.Cumming, the Author is glad to have this opportunity of expressing sincere thanks for many useful criticisms and suggestions.
