3: Organic Arsenicals in Peace and War (1940)

George Joseph Burrows

Abstract


Liversidge Research Lecture delivered on October 29th at Science House, Sydney, arranged by the Royal Society under the terms of the Liversidge bequest. Reproduced by permission of the Royal Society of New South Wales from J. Proc. Roy. Soc. N.S.W., 1940, 74, M1–M16.

"I propose, in the short time at my disposal, to treat the subject rather from an academic viewpoint and to review briefly some of the methods available for the preparation of organic derivatives of arsenic. At the same time I will use for illustrations compounds which have been of service to man, either as agents of destruction or the reverse."

"Today there are many thousands of organic arsenicals known, a fact to be attributed to the ease with which carbon-arsenic linkages are formed and also to the stability of such linkages. Once an organic arsenical is prepared, it can be subjected to many diverse types of reaction to yield fresh derivatives without severing the C-As bond. Yet in spite of this ease of formation and stability, the vast number of organic arsenicals are almost exclusively products of the laboratory."
