Reference numberRR/46/32
TitleReferee's report by Nevil Vincent Sidgwick, on a paper 'On asymmetric induction with diphenic acid' by M S Lesslie and E E Turner
Date[October 1932]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Chemistry

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Finds the criticisms of William Hobson Mills [RR/46/31] 'unanswerable'. Removing all the incorrect theory would not leave much for printing. Suggests sending the criticisms of William Hobson Turner to the author, as he is doing good work and 'would profit by them'.
