TitleReferee's report by James Charles Philip, on a paper 'The dielectric constants of liquid mixtures of phenol-water, phenol-m-cresol, phenol-aniline, and phenol-p-toluidine' by Owen Rhys Howell and Willis Jackson
Date[January 1934]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Chemistry

No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Has 'some doubt as to the absolute accuracy of the authors' measurements', but as the argument deals with relative values this may be only a minor criticism. Criticises the authors' interpretation of the curves.
