Abstract

"Tube of Wood-tar-- Tube contained Wood-tar. Temp raised gradually from 75 [degrees] to 600 [degrees] Fahr. In 1 hour. As tube was cooling, selaed tip cracked off allowing gas & tar to escape, also immediately cracked in middle so that nearly all if tar was forced out having carbons leaving carbons nearly dry. Washed carbons in Benzo, then dried, were light brown in color not preliminarized, & when broken split up into elementary fibers, the cementing material being almost entirely destroyed by the process. When pulled apart or crushed, fibres borke up into a fine wooly mass, very soft & to all appearances first rate stuff out of which to make paper, or good process for preparing paper stock."
