Fractioning columns II

Snyder is identified! (see previous post)

In a paper the inventor is mentioned; E.O. Snyder of the Barret company. (Laboratory Fractionating Columns; Ind. Eng. Chem. 1927, 19, 379)

The paper contains this drawing of columns.

Great, more work to do.

Wurtz column - Charles Adolphe Wurtz (that was easy)

Henninger-Le Bel column - J.A. Le Bel and Arthur Henninger (Henninger is mentioned here)

Glinsky column and Young column (often referred to as a Young and Thomas column) are not identified yet.

In Ind. Eng. Chem. Anal. Ed. 1931, 3, 377 a few other columns are mentioned. Brunn, Brown, Taylor.... Even more work to do.

Taylor column - Hugh S. Taylor

Catalytic Dehydration of C6-C8 Aliphatic Alcohols; J. Am. Chem. Soc, 1939, 61, 1751

Brunn column - Johannes H. Brunn

Laboratory Rectifying Columns with Non-Siphoning Bubbling-Cap Plates; Ind. Eng. Chem. Anal. Ed, 1929, 1, 212

We hope to find Brown some day.
