The cover picture shows a garlic bulb surrounded by some of the most important organosulfur compounds and intermediates that can be isolated from it. Besides the preparative and analytical aspects of these compounds and the analogous substances from onion, which interest pure chemist, E. Block also discusses the medicinal effects attributed to the Allium genus in his article on page 1135ff. and closes with comments on odor and indigestion caused by these plants.
