Developments in the production of chemicals from the forest, with the exception of naval stores and rebated tall oil chemicals, are discussed under the three principal chemical utilization processes; destructive distillation, wood hydrolysis, and chemical pulping. Emphasis is placed on commercial production, but interesting laboratory developments are considered. The number of new commercially produced silvichemicals suggests continued advances in this area.
