The energy-chain mechanism for the thermal oxidation of tetralin' by Philip George and Alan Robertson
Datend [1944]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Chemistry

Has finally had time to read the 'voluminous papers'. Suggests telling Eric Keightley Rideal that the referee agrees to publication, provided some editing and curtailment of paper II is done. Requests adding a note, stating that delay in returning the papers has been due to war work.
