Abstract

"In the spring of 1919 the Eastman Kodak laboratories suggested to the chemistry department of the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy that experiments on small-scale production of furfural be undertaken. After a series of experiments a small amount of this product was made and a report was given before the American chemical Society at St. Louis in April 1920. The furfural prepared at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy was sold to the Eastman Kodak laboratories. Within recent years very little experimental work has been done on furfural. It commands a high price as only small amounts are found on the market. The object of this work is to prepare a few compounds of furfural and to study their commercial possibilities"--Introduction, page 3.
