In its broadest sense, and according to the traditional conception, wood chemistry is a comprehensive discipline, ranging from fundamental studies to practical applications. The manifold constituents, located in different morphological regions in the wood, results in an extreme complexity of wood chemistry. Ever more sophisticated endeavors needing fundamental studies and advanced analytical methods are necessary in order to delve deeper into various problems in pulping and papermaking. Gradually, new, improved ana lytical methods, originally developed for research purposes, are currently replacing many of the old "routine" methods in practical applications. Because of the expanse of the subject, an attempt to write a book of this size about analytical methods seems, perhaps, too ambitious. Of course, a whole book series of several volumes would be necessary to cover this topic completely. However, there is undoubtedly a need for a more condensed presentation which does not go into experimental details, but is limited to the basic principles of the analytical methods and illustrates their applica tions. The emphasis is on more advanced and potential methods, and partic ularly on those based on different types of spectroscopy and chromatography.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE CHEMISTRY OF CELLULOSE by J. T. MARSH M. Originally published in 1938. FOREWORD: CELLULOSE chemistry is a subject for the scientific expert, and hence I cannot attempt to add anything to the substance of this book. It has, however, been my experience that the close correlation of science to the textile industry has already had a profound effect on its development, and that a closer bond between the two is the surest way to promote future advances. The more science is applied, the greater the number of scientific workers engaged in probing the secrets of cellulose chemistry, the brighter will be the outlook for our industry. A knowledge of the literature on the subject is of the greatest importance to the research worker the scientific journals cover a wide range of subjects, whilst patent specifications are difficult to find and to read. Those concerned with indus trial production and process control have not the time for such reading, whilst the young research worker now entering the industry finds an overwhelming mass of literature before him. This book should therefore present a very valuable introduction to the subject of cellulose chemistry, and should be of great assistance in these two cases. To those who wish to obtain a wider general knowledge of the subject it should also prove most useful. KENNETH LEE. MANCHESTER, May, 1938. PREFACE: OF making many books there is no end but we trust that no excuse is needed for the present work. The subject of cellulose chemistry is not among the simplest of studies, but the important advances of recent years have clarified it to such an extent that we feel the time is ripe for publishing a relatively simple book which may act as a guide to the younger chemists who are entering those branches of our great industries which are concerned with cellulose. It is to the ordinary chemist that we hope this elementary account will appeal for this reason we have tried to maintain some sort of balance between the descriptions of the purely scientific aspect of the subject and the practical applications. The narrative, in many cases, has a slight historical flavour in order to emphasise the course of development, but we have not adhered to the chronological sequence of description. We have given no bibliography, as the source-books and journals are mentioned as occasion arises. Our guide-book is not intended as a substitute for the original literature which should always be consulted by the student. Nevertheless, we feel that a good general knowledge should first be acquired rather than a detailed mastery of any particular section, for experience has shown that successful research need not necessarily depend on an initial deep knowledge of a subject, which is often only acquired during the actual course of research. ...

This richly-illustrated book presents the information necessary for fiber analysis in the field of pulp and paper. A discussion of raw-material structure and the features used for species identification in pulp is followed up by the description of 117 fiber species. Of these, 83 are wood fibers and 34 are of nonwood origin. The tree species range across all five continents, 29 from Eurasia, 38 from North America and 16 from the southern hemisphere and the tropics. Informative micrographs, identification tables, and distribution maps aid species differentiation, making this atlas ideal for everyone interested in fiber identification.
