Spurenelemente in Wein und anderen Getranken (Trace Elements in Wine and Other Beverages). By H. Eschnauer.
Verlag Chemie GmbH, Weinheim 1974. 1st Edit., viii, 220
pp., 7 figures, 129 tables, bound DM 78.--.
In this book information concerning the trace elements
of wine and other beverages is presented fully systematically
and for the first time. The first part of the book deals with
the general problems of trace analysis, namely separation
processes, methods of determination, and the reliability of
the results, together with the development of the analysis
of wine. Particular attention is paid to modern analytical
procedures which first made trace element analysis possible.
This is followed by presentation of the actual results, arranged
according to the elements. In each case the most important
properties of the elements are mentioned and these are followed by their contents in alcoholic beverages, their raw materials, and their intermediate products. Here the distinction
between primary and secondary components deserves close
attention. Fundamental relationships between these components and, inter alia, the soil properties, climatic conditions,
and ecological processes are described. A survey of the most
common and the most recommended analytical methods is
included. Each chapter is supplemented by an extensive
A summary of the mineral and trace element content of
alcoholic beverages and of German mineral waters is provided
in the last section. Nutritional, biological, biochemical, fermentational, and plant-physiological aspects are discussed.
This book deserves special mention because of the wealth
of material collected, the clear arrangement of the text, the
comprehensive, in part tabular, presentation, and not least
the large number of references. As a reference work it constitutes a valuable tool for all the specialists concerned.

Polymer Spectroscopy.Edited by D. 0.Hummel. Verlag Chemie
GmbH, Weinheim 1974. 1st Edit., xii, 401 pp., 262 figures,
76 tables, bound D M 125.-.
This monograph contains a review of the present state of
the theory and applications of vibration spectroscopy (IR,
Raman), magnetic resonance (NMR, ESR) and mass spectroscopy of synthetic polymers. Several other extremely important
spectroscopic methods, such as UV, X-ray structure analysis,
and neutron diffraction, have purposely been omitted, and
the same applies to discussion of biopolymers.
In the first section of Chapter 2, H . Tadokoro and M . Kobayashi
undertake the difficult task of presenting, briefly and with
special reference to polymers, the procedure in the analysis
of an IR spectrum and the theoretical prediction of vibrational
frequencies by group-theory treatment of the problem. The
application of the procedure described is demonstrated on
selected polymers.
In Section 2 of Chapter 2, by D. 0. Hummel, the polymer
spectroscopist who is not so familiar with this very complicated
subject will find the empirical method of IR spectroscopy
of polymers described for many examples.
P. J . Hendra records very clearly, in Section 3 of Chapter
2, the methods, scope, and examples of Raman spectroscopy
of polymers now that lasers are used as radiation sources.
Chapter 3, by E. Klesper and G. Sielafl, has as its main
theme the statistics of chain-polymerization of synthetic homoAngew. Chem. internat. Edit.

and copolymers, with NMR spectroscopy providing the analytical method. For a few examples the systematic analytical
procedure for NMR spectra and comparison of the theoreticalstatistical with the experimental results are demonstrated in
full detail. Unfortunately, the possible introduction of 3CNMR spectroscopy is rarely taken into account. A detailed
collection of references to all the synthetic polymers examined
by NMR spectroscopy up to 1972 closes this chapter.
In Chapter 4, H. Fischer and D. 0. Hummel introduce ESR
Spectroscopy, and not exclusively for polymers. The examples
treated give a very good survey of the ESR spectra of polymer
radicals that are formed by irradiation, on radical polymerization or on mechanical treatment.
D. 0. Hummel, H.-D. Schliddemage, and K . Riibenacker describe in Chapter 5 the limited possibilities for mass spectrometry in the field of high polymers, with a good selection of
With its many thoroughly treated examples, this book will
provide a very good insight into this material and a great
many valuable suggestions to the polymer chemist interested
in empirical spectroscopy; for the theoretically oriented
polymer chemist, the necessarily very brief and in part highly
specialized theoretical treatments will hardly suffice, although
the extensive bibliography will be of great help in further
study of the subject. Some hints for chemists interested in
biopolymers would have been welcome.
