reference to the method described by Shaffer and Marriot (ANALYST, 1914,39,184) for the estimation of acetone and /3-hydroxybutyric acid in urine, in which use is made of MeBsingers' method for the estimation of acetone, the following work wag done to control the accuracy of that method: A sample of acetone regenerated from the bisulphite compound was purified by distillation with permanganate and then with calcium ohloride. The product was then submitted to fractional distillation, and the

The sample is weighed out in a, small glass bulb of 2 t o 3 C.C. oapacity. The bulb is dropped into a 2-litre measuring flask and broken under water, the solution being then made up to the mark. Precautions are required to prevent loss of acetone in measuring off this dilute
