THIS monograph is the first instalment of a series in which are to be presented the results of several years of work of the author and his collaborators. From 1908 to the outbreak of war Dr. Henri devoted his attention to the experimental study of various chemical aspects of the interaction between radiation and matter, dealing chiefly with the absorption of light in the infra-red and ultra-violet regions, with dispersion in the ultra-violet, with chemical reactions brought about by light, and with certain technical and biological aspects of the subject. In 1915 he went to Russia to help in scientific work in connection with the war, and towards the end of 1917 began to work up the mass of data accumulated in preceding years. Very few of his results had been published separately—papers by Bielecki, Boll, and Wurmser will, however, be familiar to workers in this field.
