This little volume is based on a course of lectures delivered by Professor Barger in 1927-1928, while incumbent of the Baker Non-Resident Lectureship in Chemistry at Cornell University. The lectures describe some applications of organic chemistry to biology and medicine, a field in which Dr. Barger has been an important contributor. The main portion of the lectures deal with actual accomplishments. This does not deter the author from pointing out where future progress may be expected. Dr. Barger's contributions to the field of endeavor covered by the title endow these suggestions with a seriousness that will not be taken lightly. While the work was not prepared for the general practitioner, a perusal will give those with a penchant for the problems of organic chemistry many an insight into the problems that confront the organic chemist who uses his skill for the preparation of pharmacologically useful compounds. The investigations of Barger
