The Hoppe-Seyler method not offering a means of separation of the lecithins from the kephalins was not experimentally investigated. In attempting to apply the method of Koch to other tissues than the brain and spinal cord, more silver iodide was obtained than could possibly be accounted for by lecithans. This being true, the source of error was investigated.
