TitleReferee's report by John Edward Lennard-Jones, on a paper 'A resonating-valence-bond theory of metals and intermetallic compounds' by Linus Carl Pauling
DescriptionSectional committee: Chemistry

Recommended for publication in Proceedings. The style of the paper isn't of good English and he makes sweeping deductions about methods of calculation. However, it contains interesting new ideas. The author should be asked if he would like the proofs corrected in this country.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1949].
