  • Letter from Dr. R. von Konow, Finland, to LP RE: Dr. Mark suggested that von Konow contact LP to have his ideas checked. The chemical knowledge of the photographic process is based upon Gurney and Mott's theory, which contains very complicated and contradictory explanations. Difficulties will occur if one presents a simple hypothesis which is in accordance with general chemical laws. Heidt presumes in his theory for oxidation of glycols that the negative ions are smaller than the positive ions and that glycols dissociate hydrogen ions to 100%. Von Konow would like to reconsider these theories. Encloses reprints of his papers for LP's review.
