The Chemical Constitution of Cerebrine

  • Edward G. Geoghegan (a1)

To judge from the sparse literature of the subject, cerebrine has not often been chemically studied. The first work of any importance was done by W. Müller. Müller obtained the body, which he called “Cerebrine,” free from phosphorus by digesting the brain with baryta-water. He also analysed it, and proposed the formula, C34 H33 NO6.
