Excerpt from Nitrocellulose Industry, Vol. 1 of 2: A Compendium of the History, Chemistry, Manufacture Commercial Application and Analysis of Nitrates, Acetates and Nanthates of Cellulose as Applied to the Peaceful Arts, With a Chapter on Gun Cotton,MoreExcerpt from Nitrocellulose Industry, Vol. 1 of 2: A Compendium of the History, Chemistry, Manufacture Commercial Application and Analysis of Nitrates, Acetates and Nanthates of Cellulose as Applied to the Peaceful Arts, With a Chapter on Gun Cotton, Smokeless Powder and Explosive Cellulose NitratesThe following pages endeavor to indicate, in general by statement, and in detail by additional references, the fundamental facts constituting the industry of nitrocellulose commensurate with the magnitude and importance of the subject, and in so doing to bring out the fact that the existence, continuity, and advancement of these alts depend primarily upon the fidelity with which human ingenuity has been able to imitate nature in the production of that which is rare and beautiful, and hence much sought after and costly.The general arrangement of the subject matter is as follows: After recording some facts respecting cellulose bearing on the development of the subsequent topics (Chapter I), the theory (II) and manufacture III of the cellulose nitrates is taken up.

Inasmuch as in the dry state, the latter have but comparatively few uses, the solvents (IV), especially fuel oil (V), from which the solvent amyl acetate is prepared (VI), follows, and the latent solvent camphor and its substitutes (VII) of rapidly increasing interest. These solvents are used extensively in modern paint removers and turpentine substitutes (VIII). Combining the cellulose nitrates with the aforesaid solvents (IX), results in the formation of lacquers (X), artificial (XI) and real (XII) leather coatings, and the formation of imitation silk filaments (XIII).

The second volume combines the materials of II, III, and VII in the formation of pyroxylin plastics typified by celluloid (XIV), the collodions being used in pharmacy (XV) and photography (XVII) and in a purified form as the celloidin and photoxylon of microscopy (XVI). Guncotton and the higher nitrates in smokeless powders and explosives complete (XVIII) the technical uses. Closely allied are the cellulose acetates (XIX) and xanthates (XX). There is hardly a branch of the foregoing in which denatured ethyl alcohol (XXI) is not being extensively used.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
