A. H. PRICE has published1 a table of values of vapour pressure of tritiated water. As these values differed greatly from our previous results, based on enrichment experiments of tritiated water in fractionating columns2,3, it was decided to re-evaluate these results, taking into account our latest data of column operation4.
