FALL MEETING NOTES
Our program for the Fall meeting at Atlantic
City, New Jersey, September 9-12, 1962,
promises to be most informative. The 32 papers
to be presented cover a variety of topics of interest
to everyone concerned with technical literature,
its use and dissemination. The abstracts
of these papers can be found in another
section of this issue.
Scheduled to speak at the Division's luncheon
on Tuesday, September 11, 1962, is Dr. W.
Conard Fernelius, Assistant Director of Research
at Koppers Company, Pittsburgh, Penn.
Dr. Fernelius will discuss a topic of timely
interest: Publication Problems in the Underdeveloped

GLOSSARY OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY-- Including
Physical Organic Chemistry. Saul Pat ai. John Wiley and
Son, Incorporated. Interscience Division (New York),
1962. 227 + XIV pages. $7.50
Although written for the non-specialist or
student chemist, this handy guide should prove
useful as a quick "refresher" for the more expert.
Explanations are brief but sufficiently
complete and easily understandable. There is
a wealth of information nicely accumulated be -
tween the covers of this small book, but the
overly critical may wonder what basis the author
used to select or reject terms. Included are
such expressions as the Ostromyslenskii butadiene
synthesis, neighbouring group participation,
the Reissert reaction, and Ponderal effects.
Regrettably absent are terms like substrate,
platforming, and ligand. While thermochromism
is included, the related phenomenon
of photochromism or photochromy is not. The
neophyte information specialist may find helpful
the listing of review publications, textbooks,
monographs, and other reference works used
by the author in making his compilation.
G. Richard Handrick
STEROID DRUGS. Norman Applezweig. McGraw-Hill Co.,
Inc. (New York), 1962. 742 pages. $25.00.
Detailed physiologic, chemical, and medical
information on steroid drugs has been nicely
accumulated under one cover. This state-ofthe-art
review should be a valuable aid not only
to the author's intended audience--chemists,
biologists, clinicians, and business and government
executives--but also to the many literature
chemists interested in the chemical, biological,
and clinical motivations in steroid research.
The reader can trace the history and background
of steroid product development, find useful
flow sheets and process data and a handy
tabulation of compounds having similar biological
activity. The information scientist will be
particularly interested in the structural notation
worked out to arrange steroid hormones in an
unambiguous and easily understood order,
grouping together compounds with closely related
structural and biological activities. More
than 1800 biologically active steroids are coded.
Here’s what’s next.
