Synthesis of substances related to rubrementinum salts
MetadataShow full item record
In 9152, the evidence available was still insufficient to decide between various structures proposed for the rubrementinium salts. The author has therefore attempted to gather further evidence. The evidence available in the literature is discussed in Part II, and the author’s work in Parts III and IV of this thesis. The substances which the present author has termed rubremetinium salts have more than one name in the literature. Karrer uses the name “dehydroemetin”. Pyman, who discovered the salts, at first used “rubremetine”. It was later found, however, that the salts are quaternary, so Pyman applied to the quaternary ion the name “rubremetinium”. This name will be used throughout the present thesis.
