|Title||Referee's report by Edmund John Bowen, on three papers 'A study of sensitized explosions. Parts V, VI and VII' by Frederick Sydney Dainton and Ronald George Wreyford Norrish|
|Description||Sectional committee: Chemistry|
Recommended for publication in Proceedings. The work is valuable and will be of assistance to other workers in the subject. Although it is an advance in knowledge, it doesn't justify the length of the paper. The style is of a lecture and includes lots of repetition. Much of the space is devoted to other people's theories. The division of the work into three papers is 'wasteful and unnecessary'. The papers should be combined and reduced to no more than twenty-four pages. This can be easily done if they create a concise account of their own work.
Contains extra question - 'Is there any information contained in the paper which likely to be of value to the enemy?' Referee replies no.
Includes typescript copy of general comments.
