This volume in this extensive and important chemical series covers the carboxylic acids that contain the naphthalene skeleton. Such better-known compounds as the naphthylacetic acids, santonin, carboxylic acid derivatives of decalin, and tetralone are included in a host of organic compounds that are lesser known (to the physician). Wherever possible, data are given concerning the physiological and biological properties of these substances. The literature through 1944 and the structure of compounds as determined up to the beginning of 1953 are included.
