    • Abstract


      The introduction of the azo-group into the molecule of ano-hydroxycarbonyl compound does not invariably produce a negative result in the fluorescence test with boric acid carried out under filtered U.V. light. Fluorescence intensification on the addition of boric acid is observed in several cases, though there is a marked diminution in the intensity of the effect when compared with the parento-hydroxy-carbonyl molecule.

      The fluorescence test for theortho-orientation of the hydroxyl and carbonyl groups is also applicable to the azo-dyes but a negative result does not prove the contrary.
