Abstract

AT the suggestion of Prof. Rutherford, I have made an examination to see if there is any product in actinium corresponding to the product UrX in uranium or ThX in thorium. The investigations were made with a preparation of the emanating substance of Giesel (of activity 300 times that of uranium), which has been shown to be identical in radio-active properties with the actinium of Debierne.
