Does ayone have a copy of Sheppard's paper from 1925 on gelatin and sulfur compounds? It's old enough that copyright no longer applies and it would be nice to see it online.

I looked Kirk and that is it. Notice how useless it is in regard to what is actually done now? In fact, the mustard oils were merely disclosed to disclose the use of sulfur. The real methodology was to use the C=S bond and that was found in thiourea, thiocyanate and other compounds.
