    Memo to Linus Pauling from Himself

    Researches on Hemoglobin

    1. Study Urechis hemoglobin in various ways.

    2. Look for intermediates in carbonmonoxyhemoglobin by the electrophoretic method.

    3. Investigate the salt effect on hemoglobin in combining with the various alkylisocyanides. Salt-free hemoglobin should give the same equilibrium constants with different isocyanides, if our steric explanation of interactions is correct. Also, it would be very interesting to see how much interaction still remains in salt-free material in combination with isocyanides.

    4. Perhaps the pH dependence of combination with isocyanides could be studied
