Since the issue of ASTM Special Technical Publication No. 150 in September, 1953, considerably greater interest in the analysis of synthetic detergents has become evident. The formation of 21 task groups of Joint AOCS-ASTM Subcommittee T-2 for the analysis of soaps and synthetic detergents has simply strengthened the need for this bibliography. As far as possible, the original references have been abstracted with the peculiar needs of the analyst in mind. Where original references were unavailable, abstract journals were used, and these are given in such cases as secondary references. No attempt has necessarily been made to trace the origin of specific techniques or methods, but where these were available, this has been done. Some references have been included which it was felt might have bearing upon the development of applicable methods. The first reference is dated 1888, much in advance of today's detergents, but is significant as the basis for techniques which may currently be used.
