Infra-Red Spectra of Silica

Naturevolume 134page739 (1934) | Download Citation



An experimental investigation of the infra-red absorption of transparent silica between 1·0 and 7·5 has resulted in the correction and extension of existing data, with the consequent possibility of formulating a set of vibration frequencies which appear to have more significance than those hitherto put forward. Pending detailed publication it may be useful to summarise some of the results.
