SYMPOSIUM: THE LITERATURE IN THE FIELD
OF CELLULOSE AND ITS RELATED MATERIALS
(Joint with Division of Cellulose Chemistry)
Harry F. Lewis, Presiding
9:00- 1. Introductory Remarks. HARRY F. LEWIS, Dean,
Institute of Paper Chemistry, Appleton,Wisconsin.
9:10- 2. Publications in the Field of Cellulose and
Related Materials. W. M. HEARON, Assistant
Director of Research, Central Research
Department, Crown-Zellerbach Corporation,
This paper covers the nature of the various technical publications
in the field of wood, cellulose, and related chemicals.
The survey covers periodicals, patents, commercial technical
bulletins, and similar literature, but not books. The publications
include those from many foreign countries as well as the United
Discussion of the publications is from the point of view of
where various types of articles or information will be found.
There is no evaluation of the technical material presented, but
there is an evaluation of the professional competence of each
publication. Mention is also made of the languages which are
generally used in the foreign publications.
9:30- 3. Abstract Services Covering the Chemistry of
Cellulose and Related Fields. CURTIS L.
BROWN, Prevention of Deterioration Center,
National Research Council, Washington, D.C.
Over 100 domestic and foreign abstract services of interest to
the cellulose chemist are surveyed with respect to importance,
coverage, frequency, collateral services, and special features.
These services are divided into three major groups: (1) publications
devoted exclusively to one or more special fields in
which cellulose plays a predominant role, notably the wood,
paper, textiles, plastics, and allied industries; (2) periodicals
covering the entire field of chemistry and chemical technology
and regularly containing sections on cellulosic materials; and
(3) general and specific journals dealing with fields related to
or including certain branches of chemistry, in which information
on cellulose and related subjects can be expected more or less
irregularly. Each group is subdivided into abstract journals,
that is, publications devoted entirely or to a significant extent
to abstracts,and journals carrying only a small abstract section
as a regular feature or at irregular intervals.

9:50- 4. The Literature in the Field of Cellulose and its
Related Materials - Its Definitive Literature.
E. C. JAHN, State University of New York
College of Forestry.
The definitive literature on cellulose and related materials
developed rather slowly, beginning towards the close of the
last century. Among some of the early works are Cross and
Bevan's monograph on "Cellulose," Czaperk's "Biochemie
der Pflanzen," and Schwalbels "Chemie der Cellulose." Gradually,
interest in this important branch of chemistry has led
to the development of an expanding group of comprehensive
works. These may be loosely grouped into two broad types. One
group includes works dealing only with a limited subject, such
as lignin or hemicelluloses, and the other includes more
cdrnprehensive works covering a broader field. Some of the
latter are cooperative efforts by a large number of specialists.
The boundaries of the definitive literature are not sharp,
since works dealing with the biochemistry and physiology of
plants often include much material on cellulose and related
There is also a gradation into the wide area of technical
literature dealing with the processing and utilization of
cellulose and wood. However, the definitive literature of
cellulose is now sufficiently comprehensive to form an important
independent group of chemical works.
Available Bibliographies in the Cellulose,
Pulp, and Paper Fields. JACK WEINER, The
Institute of Paper Chemistry, Appleton, Wisconsin.
The comparative dearth of annotated bibliographic material on
the chemistry of cellulose and its derivatives is due to the
vastness of the subject and to the lack of central organization
for the planning and preparation of bibliographies in this
field. The greater part of bibliographical material on the
chemistry of cellulose is contained in books, periodicals, and
reviews, in the form of literature cited or bibliographical
footnotes. However, the fields of pulp and paper present an
entirely different picture. Here, a planned and comprehensive
series of bibliographies was undertaken, beginning in 1936, at
the Institute of Paper Chemistry, under the able guidance of
the late Dr. C. J. West, which resulted in the preparation
of 182 bibliographies in the pulp and paper field.
