Summary of "Divine's CO Absorber of 1867."

Chemist and inventor Silas R. Divine (1838-1912) sold ammonium nitrate and other anesthesia supplies in New York City. He offered a carbon dioxide absorber for the purpose of rebreathing nitrous oxide. Like his colleague Gardner Q. Colton, he denied the need for nitrous oxide to be supplemented with O gas.
