This 1954 book was the first to be devoted to the fundamental
properties of the aromatic compounds as a whole. It describes the
experimental and theoretical attempts to explain their structure
and discusses their characteristic properties and the mechanism of
their reactions. Heterocyclic compounds are included in Dr Badger's
survey. Aromatic compounds are characterised by their cyclic
molecular structure, their high degree of unsaturation and their
stability. Coal tar is the chief source of aromatic compounds, but
they are also made from crude oil and can be produced
synthetically. Nearly all dyestuffs are 'aromatic', as are most of
the common drugs and explosives. The book addressed itself
primarily to graduates and final-year undergraduates. It was also
of interest to research chemists in the dyestuffs, pharmaceutical
and explosives industries. As some complex aromatic compounds
produce cancer on the skin of laboratory animals, cancer research
workers will also have found it relevant.
