Sectional Committee: [Physics and chemistry]

Not recommended for publication. The principle title is 'Studies on Enzyme Action' but the author gives no proof whatever that he is dealing with an enzyme or measuring its rate of action by the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. All the author's arguments based on ionic dissociation are beside the mark until he has proved this fundamental point.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1904].

Endorsed on recto as received 7 June 1904.
