1. Attempts have been made to isolate and estimate some of the organic
acids, chiefly lower fatty acids, said to be present in small quantities in
suint. Apart from the identification of benzoic acid as a decomposition
product of hippuric acid, a satisfactory separation of these acids could not
be achieved, owing to the small quantities present.
2. In olfactory tests, suint preparations and extracts (e.g. acid
fractions) failed to attract blowflies. No correlation between suint composition
and blowfly strike could, therefore, be demonstrated.
