While most of the work has had to do with the theoretical and experimental side, yet for a thorough understanding of the subject it is absolutely essential that the busy practitioner, not interested generally in chemical research, should be acquainted with the more recent advances in this subject. It has seemed, therefore, fitting to compile reports of recent date, to review the
