Points from Foregoing Letters

    Abstract

    PROF. J. W. McBAIN considers the association of molecules as the characteristic factor in colloids, and raises the question how far it is effective in the case of long chain molecules. He states that in concentrated solutions of simple sulphonic acid, molecular association, rather than inter-ionic attraction, is responsible for the increase in conductivity, freezing point lowering, etc.
