Oscillographic Polarography of Highly Polymerized Deoxyribonucleic Acid


PROCEEDING from my finding1,2 that nucleotides, nucleosides and the bases of nucleic acids can be analysed by alternating current oscillographic polarography3–5, I have also tried to study polymerized deoxyribonucleic acid by this method.
