Surface Chemistry for Industrial Research

Nature volume 162, pages 164165 (31 July 1948) | Download Citation

In fact, it is nothing of the sort ; it is an assemblage of data of surface phenomena with the fundamentals badly scamped. Too frequently also, the author introduces a topic with a definite statement and then proceeds to cite reservations and evidence against it without afterwards summing up. The reader is left confused.
