Chemistry International Volume 44, Issue 3

TOC and full issue pdf on

cover: In July 1928 in The Hague, The Netherlands, there was sufficient attention at the IUPAC conference for cheerfulness and entertainment. On Saturday, 21 July, all chemists “and their wives” were invited for a cup of tea at the Wiltzangk estate. This made for a memorable garden party. See the story behind the picture, page 4.
