(From the Introduction)
The first phase of the work to ·be presented was aimed at studying the conditions under which 1-aminonaphthalene is efficiently reduced to the 5,8-dihydro derivative and thereby finding experimental evidence which would be of value in the selection of a mechanism for the reduction. After the initial work, the study was extended to include the reduction of other 1-substituted naphthalenes.
