The organism is made up of molecules which are analogous to them.
The preference exhibited by yeast cells for sugar molecules is shared by mould fungi and soluble enzymes in their fermentative actions.
We may here mention the synthesis of oxyuvitic ester (5-methyl-4-oxy-I-3-benzene dicarboxylic ester) by the condensation of two molecules of sodium acetoacetic ester with one of chloroform (Ann., 1883, 222, p. 249).
The following table gives a comparative view of the specific heats and the ratio for molecules of variable atomic content.
This investigator held that the decomposition of the sugar molecules takes place outside the cell wall.
