Between 1832 and 1851 Avogadro published five essays covering a wide range of subjects. Two of them dealt extensively with a new field of inquiry for their author: a systematic rearrangement of chemical nomenclature. The topics of two other articles included a mathematical analysis of electric induction and a study of an equation to describe the behavior of gases approaching liquefaction. In another article Avogadro reported one of the few experimental researches he conducted in his scientific career, concerning the determination of the vapor pressure of mercury at temperatures very close to its boiling point.
