this subject. but also welcome as a work of reference on
account of its ample references to the literature (mainly up to
1962), which might however have been better collected into
a single list.

Progress in Physical Organic Chemistry. Vol. I, Edited by
S. G. Colien, A . Streitwieser, Jr., and R . W. Tnft. Interscience Publishers, a Division of John Wiley & Sons, New
York-London 1963. 1st Edit., X + 41 1 pp., numerous
tables, linen $15.00.
The stream of publications, in which organic chemical reactions are dealt with from the viewpoint or with the quantitative methods of physical chemistry, has become so fast flowing
that physical-organic chemistry must now be veriewed periodically by volumes in the “Progress” series. The first volume
in such a series has appeared under the editorship of three
leading capacities in this field. It presents critical, detailed
i-eviews of current problems and is intended to stimulate
further work and discussions. As stated in the foreword, the
editors have encouraged their authors to give comprehensive
reports, with enough numerical data, and without disdaining
speculative outlooks for the future
The present volume begins with a relatively short review
(30 pp.) by A . Streitwieser of the ionization potentials of organic radicals, hydrocarbons, and compounds with heteroatoms. S. N . Ross then reports on nucleophilic aromatic substitution (44 pp.), and N . N . Lichtin deals with ionization and
dissxiation equilibria in liquid sulfur dioxide (34 pp.). Two
long articles by E. A . Halevi and E. M . Arnett, respectively,
give abundant data on secondary isotope effects (182 pp.) and
o n the quantitativecomparisonofweakorganic bases(l14pp..
including about 80 pp. with basicity values). All the articles
are supplemented with numerous references and are written
clearly and intelligibly. Because the theory of the topics is
dealt with first, and then sometimes the experimental methcds
are described, the experimental results being given a t the end,
the essays will supply information and incentives not only to
the theoretician, but also to the organic chemist engaged in
synthetic work. The next volumes of this series can be looked
forward to.

Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry, Vol. I1 A : Electrical
Methods. Edited by C. L . Wilson and D . W. Wilson in
cooperation with C . R . N . Strouts. Elsevier Publishing Co.,
Amsterdam-London-New York 1964. 1st Edit., XVI + 268
pp., numerous illustrs. and tables, linen, price for separate
volume D M 33.50 (about S 8.50).
The series “Comprehensive Analytical Chemistry” by C. L.
Wilson and D . W. Wilson is continued by the appearance of
this first part of Volume 11. This part contains the sections
“Electrogravimethy” by A . J. Lindsey, “Potentiometric
Titration” and “Conductometric Titrations”, both by D. G.
DNvis, and a chapter o n “Impedimetric Titration” (high
frequency titration) by T . S . Burklctiller. The outward appearance of the book is excellent.
All chapters are built up according to the same pattern: a
short introduction describing the fundamentals and principles followed by a discourse on methods with data on
commercially available apparatus and their mode of functioning. Each section is closed by indications of the applications, together with a number of analytical procedures and
with occasionally very comprehensive lists of references. The
treatment of polarography, amperometry, and coulometry
and related electrical analytical methods is reserved for
Volume 11 B.
Despite the lucid and terse style of the readable text, the
editors’ original aim of presenting the book as a practical
manual is, in the reviewer’s opinion, only partially fulfilled,
and this for two reasons: first, whenever points come up
which cannot be described in detail in the space available,
references to explicatory literature should be given to support
the argument; second, a good survey of the analytical
methods available for solving definite problems should be
given, together with information on the apparatus to be
used. Both of these requirements are insufficiently fulfilled
when it is considered that in a manuscript completed in 1963,
the latest reference is from 1959 - and this only in the
section on potentiometry - and no notice is taken of recent
handbooks, monographs, and journal publications, and that
in the chapter on impedimetry - the latest technique discussed and one that is still developing - the literature has
only been checked up until 1957. Furthermore, the significant
contributions that all European countries have made to the
development of the instrumentative side of the fields discussed by the production of reliable analytical apparatus are
hardly mentioned.

Synthetic Methods of Organic Chemistry. By W. Theilheinirr.
Vol. 18, Annual for 1964, with a key to theindexin German.
Verlag S . Karger AG., Basel-New York 1964. 1st Edit.,
XVI + 565 pp., linen DM 170.- (about $43.00).
The form and quality of the 1964 volume of “Theilheimer”
are completely in keeping with the high standards of the well
known earlier volumes. A selection of 998 characteristic reactions has been made from publications in the field of preparative organic chemistry which appeared in the years 19611963. The examples include both stereospecific reactions and
transformations of numerous hetero-organic compounds.
Pared out of the cumbersome context of the original publications, the vast airay of reactions given here appear in a readily
surveyable form which provoke the reader to attempt analogous syntheses. Readers who encounter difficulties with the
classification scheme used, which is not very simple to grasp
but which is used with unerring uniformity throughout, will
find welcome assistance in the excellent key-word index
(102 pp.), which covers Vols. 16-18. However, it remains a
moot point whether an additional punched card catalogue
would not augment the value of this series.
