Abstract

The article describes the history of the foundation of the All-
Russian Sugar mills Company, its activities throughout the entire
period of its existence, and also the role in the further development
of the sugar industry of the Empire.
The work of Oscar Karlovich Kedrov-Zikhman in the
laboratory of The Experimental fields Network of the All-Russian
sugar mills society on the evaluation of methods for determining
citrate-soluble phosphoric acid in Thomas slag is presented. The
use of mineral fertilizers that is rapidly expanding in Russia has put forward to the Russian control stations the question of choosing the
most accurate and most suitable for mass studies analysis methods.
Until now, Russian laboratories have adopted methods approved
by the Union of Agricultural Experimental Stations in Germany,
which were usually taken on faith without prior critical analysis.
The Laboratory of the Experimental Fields Network of the All-
Russian Sugar Mills Association, first of all, focused its attention
on the research methods of thomas slag due to their great diversity.
In his work, Oskar Karlovich compared the following methods to
each other: The molybdenum method, with and without the
preliminary removal of silicic acid; Lorenz’s method; Rohrr’s
method; Hydrochloric acid method; Darmstadt method; Naumann’s
method. According to the results of the research, the scientist
identified the pros and cons of each of them.This work was of great
practical importance, since as a result, the most accurate and
suitable method for conducting mass research was determined.
