|Title||Paper, 'Notes on the absorption-spectra of oxygen and some of its compounds' by G D [George Downing] Liveing and J [James] Dewar|
|Description||The authors write: 'The absorption-spectrum of oxygen has engaged attention not only on account of the important part which that element plays in the world, but because of the remarkable character of that absorption, so strongly marked, exhibiting bands of two essentially different classes, and extremely variable under varying circumstances of condensation and combination. It may be expected that the study of it will reveal something new as to the nature of the molecular changes brought about by different circumstances, physical and chemical.'|
