Condition of Sparingly Soluble Substances in Gelatine

Nature volume 128, pages 222223 (08 August 1931) | Download Citation



IN a recent letter to NATURE,1 Mr. Nabar and Dr. Desai write: “It is considered that the results obtained from a study of the precipitation of sparingly soluble substances, such as silver chloride, which do not form Liesegang rings in gelatine, should not be applied to explain the condition of sparingly soluble substances, such as silver chromate, which do form Liesegang rings in gelatine. There is a difference in the function of the gelatine in the two cases.”
