Thomas Hager: So, the various kinds of powder research, and propellants and explosives, the oxypolygelatin
work, the oxygen meter, the immunological studies, and the coding work, the secret
writing. Anything that falls outside of those categories?
Linus Pauling: Well, let me see. I had Bill Lipscomb working on a separate contract, dealing with
aerosols, determining size distribution in aerosols. And I had Norton Wilson, I think,
working on the project of growing aluminum phosphate crystals to replace quartz crystals.
