TitleCollie, John Norman: certificate of election to the Royal Society
CitationAssistant Professor of Chemistry, University College, London. Distinguished as a worker in Organic Chemistry. Author of numerous papers published during the period from 1881 to the present time in the Proceedings and Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Leibig's Annalen, the Berichte of the Geman Chemical Society, and the Transactions of the Chemical Society. His earlier papers relate chiefly to the study of phosphonium and phosphine derivatives and allied ammonium compounds, their behaviour when decomposed by heat having been thoroughly studied by him. Of late years he has made important contributions to our knowledge of dehydracetic acid, having described a number of very remarkable 'condensations,' whereby it is converted into pyridine, ocinol and naphthalene derivatives.
