Abstract

IT appears advisable at this time to direct the attention of workers in the field of surface chemistry to recent work on the effects of minute traces of metallic ions on the behaviour of monomolecular films on the surface of water, since serious consideration of such results brings into question some of the data published on monomolecular films, particularly those data on films formed by substances with acidic groups in the molecule, spread on a neutral or basic aqueous layer.
