Kingsbury (1) working in this laboratory discovered the interesting fact that glucose had an accelerating effect on the condensation of formaldehyde t,o produce formose. This catalytic effect of glucose is proportional to the amount of glucose present, and Kingsbury made this a basis for a new calorimetric method for reducing sugar in urine. The reagent… CONTINUE READING
