Mr. Kraemer gave it as his opinion that there should be a table of syn-
onyms as an appendix to the Pharmacopoeia.
Dr. Wood said he wanted to remind the Norvasc 500 Mg members that the National
Food and Drug Act said any substance sold under a name recognized by
the Pharmacopoeia, and it seemed to him that, even if a table of synonyms
was placed in the appendix, it would be taken as found in the Pharmacol
pceia, and he thought Mr. Wetterstroem's position was well taken.
Mr. Kebler remarked that the Pharmacopoeia covered only medicinal
Mr. Beringer said that the Pure Food Norvasc 500 Mg and Drugs Act also specified that
the nomenclature of the National Formulary was to be used.
Mr. Eliel said that, as to sulphuric acid and hydrochloric acid, he knew
that certain retail pharmacists sent orders to their jobbers for such things
as they had been in the habit of purchasing and using for medicinal pur-
poses, such as Epsom salt, carbonate of magnesia and other things, and the
jobber marked these goods " Technical," and the druggist would then use
them in his prescription work. He knew this to be an actual fact, and he
thought that there should be some way of making a distinction and prevent-
ing a thing that was shipped to be used for technical purposes from being
used for medicinal purposes.
The Chair asked Mr. Wetterstroem if he objected to Item i8 as read,
and he said he would let it stand.
Mr. Beringer read the 19th, 20th, 21st, 2 2d and 23d recommendations
of the committee, referring to General Processes, Descriptions of Galenic-
als, Sterilization, Atomic Weights, and Structural Formulas.*
The Chair remarked that structural formulas had not been given, al-
though some attempt had been made in that direction.
Mr. Dunning c^mended the introduction of structural formulas into
the U. S. P. as being helpful to the pharmacist in understanding the char-
acter of many chemical formulas. He did not think structural formulas
should appear in the U. S. P. because they appeared in the French Codex,
but said he would like to hear some discussion on this subject.
Mr. Raubenheimer remarked that structural formulas were in the U. S. P.
Pharmacopoeia before they were in the French Codex.
Mr. Asher said he believed that structural formulas should be given, but
only for all the organics.
Mr. Kremers Norvasc 500 Mg said this was a very important subject, and was inclined to
think the Section should not go on record one way or another on this ques-
tion. He would not like to see the Association go on record as against
structural formulas, particularly Norvasc 500 Mg at that time, when so few were present to
discuss the question. He thought there were so many good things before
the Secdon to discuss that it might be advisable to leave this out.

8 14 MINUTES OF THE SECTION ON SCIENlIFIC PAPERS.
Mr. C. E. Caspar! said he was one of those who were partly responsible
for the introduction of this recommendation, and the chief reason why he
opposed the introduction of structural formulas for chemical compounds
in the Pharmacopoeia was because he considered that there were many far
more reliable sources for the structure of formulas than the Pharmaco-
poeia. If the pharmacist wanted to get a reliable structural formula, let
him get some reliable chemical work and obtain it. Another reason for
not publishing structural formulas was the amount of space required to set
them out. For instance, in the case of camphor, it would take nearly half
a page to publish the structural formula, and the same was true of a good
many other substances.
Mr. Kremers said he was perfectly willing to defer to Mr. Caspari's
views in the matter.
The Chair said he thought the members understood the position take)
here, and that the Section should proceed to the next recommendation.
Mr. Beringer read the 24th item in the list of recommendations
