Description

Sectional Committee: Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Suggests giving a clearer explanation of the term 'the molecular collision of diffusing columns'. The impression given by the authors is that they rediscovered the phenomena described, but was really discovered by Frederick George Donnan relatively recently and accepted as fact.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']

Endorsed on verso as received 9 June 1937.
