TitleReferee's report by Alexander Scott, on a paper 'The direct synthesis of ammonia' by Edgar Philip Perman
Date15 March 1905
DescriptionSectional Committee: not stated.

The paper may now be accepted for publication in the Proceedings. The author's attention might be called with advantage to one or two small points. On page ten Perman ought to be more explicit in his references to the work of previous experimenters. On page 14 the tabular statement should be distinctly stated here to refer to the primary coil; the note in brackets on page 15 might be overlooked almost. Suggests how this might be inserted, the note in brackets on page 15 might remain.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1905].

Endorsed on recto as received 16 February 1905.
