Abstract

IN NATURE and elsewhere, Prof. M. W. Travers and his collaborators have published the results of experiments on gaseous decomposition reactions, and have claimed that in a number of respects their results invalidate work published from this laboratory in the course of the past twelve years. So long as these views have appeared as the expression of the personal point of view of Prof. Travers, I have not wished to intervene, but since I have seen statements from which I differ strongly repeated at second-hand, I ask leave to make two comments.
