New Magic Bullets for Murdering Microbes (Feb, 1953)

AT YOUR END OF THE COAL CHEMICAL PIPELINE ….

NEW Magic Bullets for Murdering Microbes

Coal chemicals are the steadfast allies of the medical scientist in his uphill conquest of disease. Pyridine, for example, is vital in the manufacture of sulfa drugs. And gamma-picoline, another valuable Pittsburgh coal chemical, is the source of isonicotinic acid hydrazide, the drug which has shown bright promise in the experimental treatment of tuberculosis in recent months.

Because we control every step in the production of these coal chemicals —from coal to finished chemicals— we’re able to provide the medical and pharmaceutical fields with products of exceptional high quality and purity. This same assurance of quality extends through the closely integrated production of our entire Neville Island plant.

Whether you need coal chemicals, agricultural chemicals, dyestuffs, or the products of any of our other divisions, you’ll find Pittsburgh Coke & Chemical a reliable source . . . because we’re basic.
