Brighton, Thomas B. “The Hydrocarbons of Utah.” The Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry (American Chemical Society) 5, no. 12 (December 1913): 973-976.

Chemistry professor Thomas Brighton co-authored a journal article on tests done on five of the fifteen kinds of hydrocarbons of Utah. Brighton provided a literature review (the first seen in any of the U of U-authored journal articles up to this point) in context of the five hydrocarbons: gilsonite, ozocerite, wutzlilite, tabbyite, and rock asphalt. The authors also list possible industrial uses of the hydrocarbons.
