Bursting of Cell by Polarised Sunlight

  title={Bursting of Cell by Polarised Sunlight},
  author={E S Semmens},
AT a meeting of the Biochemical Society in November 1925, I read a paper on the “Hydrolysis of Starch in the Guard-Cells of the Leaf by Polarized Light”. This work has since been amplified and confirmed, and some of the results were shown at a meeting of the Linnean Society in April 1933.
