This volume is confined to a study of naphthoic acids and their various derivatives and homologues. In the instances of the better-known compounds, such as 1-naphthoic acid and 2-naphthoic acid, the physiological properties are reported. Reference is made in some instances to literature published as recently as 1953. Not many substances reported in this volume are known to physicians, primarily because they have not yet been established as useful in the field of medicine. Nevertheless, as a volume of an important encyclopedia of organic chemistry, this work will be frequently used by medical research men for information as chemotherapy develops and expands.
