Abstract

I HAVE read with interest the letter by Dr. Smithells and Mr. Ransley on the diffusion of gases through metals in NATURE of November 24. I agree with them that diffusion is dependent on the solubility of gases in metals, and that the approximate proportionality to P is related to the fact that sorbed hydrogen is not only monatomic, but also ionised, as pointed out by me1 and by A. Coehn2.
