IN clathrate compounds, one molecular component forms an enclosing structure trapping the second component, for which it need have little attraction. From a consideration of their properties it was suggested1 that such a compound of an inert gas and quinol might be formed by crystallization of a solution containing quinol and saturated with the inert gas at high pressure. Experiments have now been carried out to test this.
