Description

Sectional Committee: Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London', but only because the Royal Society previously published a paper by William Arthur Bone and Reginald J Sarjant. The paper mostly deals with problems of an industrial nature. Suggests the Journal of the Society of Chemical Industry might be a more suitable place for publication. Considers the publication of the previous paper a 'mistake' as it commits the society to print the current paper.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' A, 1922]

Endorsed on verso as received 26 October 1921.
