Town Musician

The most important article written by Alfred Stock was the one he wrote in 1926. Here, the famous German chemist describes in great detail how he found out that he was poisoned, and what micromercurialism is. Alfred Stock was a chemistry professor who suffered from the effects of mercury all his life. He, more than anyone in those days, was acutely aware of the subtleties of mercury poisoning and its insidiousness. Mercury is an increasing environmental problem today and should never be underestimated.
