The writer of this thesis is interested in the investigation of this subject because of the numerous metallic salts of the organic acids known to the chemist. These salts under investigation, including many others, are of great importance in the process of life. Moreover, salts of organic acids are important, in that, they are used in the preparation of various organic compounds and finally, a group of them belongs to those household substances which go under the common name of "soap." In both the plant and the animal kingdom salts of organic, as well as inorganic, acids are necessary. In view of this fact it is vitally important to know just how soluble these salts are; in what solvents are they most soluble, and what properties they possess that influence their solubilities.
