An apparatus for the purification of radon
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1947)
As is well known, radium has been used for many years as a source of gamma radiation for therapeutic use. The method consists in placing needles of radium in suitable positions on and around the cancerous growth; dosage ...
Foxton, its site and changing function.
(University of Canterbury, 1947)
To understand the present geographic character of Foxton, some knowledge of its history is essential, and it is therefore regrettable that no history of the town has ever been published. Many of the pioneer records have ...
Part 1: The solubility of krypton in water-methanol mixtures and derived thermodynamic properties; Part 2 : Attempted measurements of rates of solution of gases
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1949)
This work on the solubility of krypton in water-methanol mixtures was done to continue the series of rare gases begun by Law. This series is part of a wider plan to determine the effect of methanol in breaking down the ...
The catalytic effect of acids in anhydrous acetic acid on the rate of racemization of 1-trans-αγ-dimethylglutaconic acid
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1940)
Glutaconic acid and its derivatives have for many years been studied by Thorpe and co-workers (J.C.S., 1905, 89, 1669; Thorpe and Thole, J. C. S., 1911, 99, 2187; Goss, Ingold and Thorpe, J. C. S., 1923, 129, 1199; etc.) ...
The degree of dissociation of silver benzoate from conductivity measurements
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1946)
Much of the work on salts has been concerned with the process of solution:- i.e. Solid Salt → ions in solution. Quantitatively this operation is best described in terms of changes in certain thermodynamic functions. This ...
