Excerpt from Destructive Distillation: A Manualette of the Paraffin, Coal Tar, Rosin Oil, Petroleum, and Kindred Industries
Destructive distillation is a very ancient industry, whose intricate and numerous problems have been from time to time investigated by the ablest chemis... ts. Its study has thus had a prominent in¿uence in developing the science of Chemistry.
This little book is the first to present as a whole the industry of destructive distillation. Its contents are the substance of a course of lectures delivered in Anderson's College, Glasgow, in 1875 - 7 6, and illustrated by actual inspection of many of the processes to which it refers. Students will profit most from its perusal who have such illustration at command; and manufacturers will, it is hoped, be interested in the modern principles of the science that underlies their processes, and reap some advantage from learning how others treat the very same problems that are presented to themselves.
The author begs to express his sincere thanks to the managers of works and other friends who with much kindness, and sometimes with much trouble, have con tributed to his information on this important subject.
