KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of Chemurgy was published in 1939; the two years and more that have intervened have seen new developments, and the new material underscores the lacks that the European War brought about and what has been done to close the gaps. Paper, flax, easter plants, sweet potatoes, any beans, plastics, coffee, cotton -- products of research and experimentation, helping to substitute and replace by mass production. The needs still present particularly for a less expensive synthetic rubber. Fascinating reading, stimulating the imagination along the lines of new industrial materials, economic possibilities, etc. The aim of this new science is to abolish scarcity by modern chemy.
