|Title||Unpublished paper, 'The glucoside constitution of proteid matter' by F W [Frederick William] Pavy|
|Description||Pavy writes of his methodology: 'For a long time I have adopted a process for separating the glycogen of the liver consisting in boiling with potash, pouring into alcohol, and collecting the precipitate. For the purpose of estimation, the precipitated glycogen was converted by means of sulphuric acid into glucose, the determination of which gave the information required. I afterwards applied the process to blood, and the various organs and tissues of the body, with the result that a more or less notable amount of cupric oxide reducing product was obtained, which I at the time looked upon as taking origin, as in the case of the liver, from glycogen.'|
Includes 13 photographs of osazone crystals under the microscope.
