Thermochemistry: In Connection with a Recent Book of Marcelin Berthelot
In 1879 Mr. Marcelin Berthelot published an extensive work entitled Essai de Mécanique chimique, fondée sur la Thermochimie [Essay on Chemical Mechanics Based on Thermochemistry]. This work was the summary and synthesis of nearly twenty years’ research by the indefatigable experimenter and his students in the area of calorimetric chemistry. While pursuing his researches Mr. Berthelot was taken, as he puts it, “to the limits of his own thought,” and he never seems to have been obliged, throughout these years, to have modified the general plan of the edifice which he has so laboriously raised.
