The Solvay Institute of Chemistry


    THE first meeting of the “Institut International de Chimie Solvay” was held in Brussels on April, 20–27, under the presidency of Sir William Pope. It will be remembered that before the war M. Ernest Solvay set aside a capital sum to be expended in the course of thirty years by the International Institute of Physics, and that meetings under the auspices of this Institute have been held in Brussels both before, and since the war. More recently M. Solvay has set aside a further capital sum of one million francs, also to be expended in thirty years, for the promotion of the science of chemistry.
