Animal chemistry, or, Chemistry in its applications to physiology and pathology
This book explains the chemical changes that take place during natural processes, including fermentation and decomposition, respiration, and digestion. The authors emphasize a chemical explanation for fermentation, refuting microorganisms as its agents. It was published a couple of decades before Pasteur’s experiments proved that microbes were the agents of fermentation and other natural processes.
