John Stuart Anderson portrait and lecture name

4b: The Imperfect Crystal (1942b)

John Stuart Anderson


The second Liversidge Research Lecture by J.S. Anderson; delivered before the Royal Society of N.S.W. on August 19, 1942. Reproduced by permission of the Royal Society of New South Wales from J.Proc. Roy. Soc. N.S.W., 1942, 76, 345–358.

"In the formulation of our basic chemical theory, the study of gases and their generalised laws played, as every chemist and physicist recognises, a most significant part. During recent years we have acquired an entirely new insight into the constitution of the solid state of matter, which may well have a comparable effect in moulding our chemical outlook. This is especially true in the domain of inorganic chemistry, and the work of the Braggs and other pioneers in the field of crystal structure must be ranked, with Werner's theory, amongst the most important accessions to general chemical theory."
