Emeritus Professor Robert Whytlaw-Gray, formerly Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Administrative Head of the Chemistry Department in the University of Leeds, was the grandson of an Armagh man who emigrated to Australia about a hundred years ago with his wife, daughter and son Robert James, and built up a very big business in Sydney. Robert James Cray returned to Britain as a young man to take charge of the London office, and at the age of twenty-seven he married Mary Gilkieson Gemmell… 


Radium-D and the Final Product of the Radium Disintegration Series
A RECENT discussion in the columns of NATURE has raised the question of the existence of elements chemically and spectroscopically identical but differing from one another by a few units of atomic
The Atomic Weight of Xenon
The values of 130.2 and 82.9 for the atomic weights of xenon and krypton respectively in the International Table of Atomic Weights are based on the determinations made by Moore of the densities of
The Atomic Weight of Fluorine.
THERE is a good deal of evidence from chemical sources that the atomic weight of fluorine is greater than 19.00. In recent years the ratio of sodium fluoride to sodium chloride has been determined by
A Significant Error in the Determination at Low Pressures of the Virial Coefficients of Vapours
THE differential method1 which we have developed arid which has been applied successfully to the accurate measurement at low pressures of the deviations from ideality of a number of gases has, with
Higher Homologues of Sulphur Hexafluoride
IN fractionally subliming solid sulphur hexafluoride at low temperatures, we have noticed that the last fraction liquefied before vapourising. The vapour was obtained in a fairly pure state after
Preparation of Protium Oxide and Determination of the Proportion of Deuterium in the Hydrogen of Normal Water
WE have recently prepared specimens of highly purified water almost free from deuterium and have compared their densities with that of similarly purified, ordinary water. The preparations were
