Description:

8vo. [vi], xvi, 484, [1] pp. With 1 plate and 3 folding tables, numerous text tables. An extraordinary copy, unpressed and bound in the original printed boards; some foxing. From the library of Eleanor R. Webster, professor of chemistry at Wellesley College. Preserved in a folding clamshell box. First edition of the author’s classic study of animal fats. He determined that fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol, easily separated by saponification. He also discovered several chemical species such as oleic, butyric, caproic and capric acids, stearic acid ("stearine"), cholesterol ("cholesterine") and glycerol ("glycérine"). The first part contains definitions and descriptions of Chevreul’s method of analysis, as well as a description of all species of fats and their saponification products. He here describes the discovery of stearic acid by the resolution of the soap of sheep fat into two distinct components. The next section contains a comparison of the different animal fats and a discussion of saponification. The final chapter is a summary and a series of conjectures on the immediate components of fats. Few areas of chemistry had been so thoroughly explored at the time Chevreul conducted his experiments. His discoveries led to the establishment of the great industry of stearin candles. According to the DSB, "Chevreul’s Recherches is a full account of the chemistry of fats. He had revealed the nature of a large and important class of organic substances and had shown that they were composed of a few chemical species which were amenable to analysis and obeyed the same laws of chemical combination followed by simpler substances in the inorganic realm. The book is a model of complete, exhaustive research in organic chemistry."Chevreul (1768-1889), who lived to nearly 103 years old, was an active chemist for 80 years. The student of the eminent French chemist Vauquélin (1763-1829), he succeeded him as chair at the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle, a position which he held for over thirty years. Appointed director of the famous dye factory Gobelins, it was while there that he accomplished his important research on dyes and developed his remarkable analysis of colour. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Chez F. G. Levrault (de l'Imprimerie de Cellot), A Paris, 1823. In-8° (207x130mm), pp. (4), XVI, 484, (1) di errata, legatura coeva m. pelle marrone con titolo e filetti in oro al dorso. Piatti marmorizzati. 3 tabelle ripiegate f.t. e una tav. incisa f.t. Minime fioriture. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione di questa importante monografia sulla chimica dei corpi grassi di origine animale. Lo Chevreul fu il primo a determinare che i grassi sono composti di acidi grassi e glicerolo, facilmente separati dalla saponificazione. "Chevreul’s Recherches is a full account of the chemistry of fats. He had revealed the nature of a large and important class of organic substances and had shown that they were composed of a few chemical species which were amenable to analysis and obeyed the same laws of chemical combination followed by simpler substances in the inorganic realm. The book is a model of complete, exhaustive research in organic chemistry. Few areas of chemistry at this time had been so throughly explored. Although his studies were followed by those of many chemists, who extended the number of fatty acids isolatable from fats and oils, there was no one comparable to Chevreul in this field until Thomas Percy Hilditch, a century later" (D.S.B.). A classic study of animal fats. Chevreul discovered that fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol (Garrison-Morton). Lo Chevreul (Angers, 1786-Parigi, 1789), chimico morto ultracentenario, oltre che per le sue ricerche sugli acidi grassi è celebre per essere stato uno dei pionieri della gerontologia nonché l'inventore delle margarine e per i suoi studi sulla colorazione tessile e sulla luce e il colore. Assistente del Vauquelin al Museo Nazionale di Storia Naturale di Parigi, nel 1830 gli succedette alla cattedra di chimica organica presso lo stesso Museo. Partington, IV, pp. 247-249. Bolton, 365. D.S.B., III, 242-243. Garrison-Morton, 669. En Français dans le Texte, 237: Il établit que les matières organiques obéissent aux mêmes lois que les composés minéraux. Poggendorff, I, 443. Brunet, I, 1841. Scienziati e tecnologi, I, 306 - 307. Il principale lavoro di Chevreul si svolse nel campo della chimica organica e nel 1823 pubblicò il risultato di parecchi anni di lavoro sulla teoria della saponificazione. Il lavoro di Chevreul ha fornito la base scientifica ad un' industria la cui espansione era legata all' incremento della produzione di soda. Francese. Bookseller Inventory # 35284
