Excerpt from Industrial Organic Analysis: For the Use of Technical and Analytical Chemists and Students
The relationship between science and industry has been the subject of endless discussion in recent years, and, if tangible results have not been numerous, signs are not wanting that the value of scientifically trained men in industry is now frankly recognised in some quarters and that the universities and colleges are anxious to provide for any demand for such men which may arise.
So far there is agreement between the parties, but, assuming that the employer is perfectly clear as to what he wants, teaching institutions are by no means agreed on the best means of modifying their curricula to meet modern requirements. The orthodox course for a degree in science certainly shows a desirable uniformity, but differences of opinion at once arise when attempts are made to frame an educational policy which will retain for institutions of university rank the ideal of wide culture, while admitting some aspect of practical training of use in the field of industrial work.
In the particular case of chemical training, these difficulties are modified, if not entirely removed, when the special qualifications desirable in the technical chemist are taken into account. That he should have received as thorough a training as possible in what is often termed "Pure Chemistry" may be accepted as a matter of course.
