For this reason it is possible to determine the freezing point curves of acetaldehyde and paraldehyde.
The substance investigated was acetaldehyde, C2H4O, in its relation to paraldehyde, a polymeric modification.
For the same reason the use of paraldehyde in such cases is quite inadmissable.
paraldehyde may be used, or the bromides in connection with opium if the latter alone is not well borne.
Recently, paraldehyde has been employed as a substitute for chloral.
An ounce of this mixture contains forty-five grains of paraldehyde.
