Abstract

A theoretical discussion based on the electron theory of H. A. Lorentz yielded formulas for the magnetic rotatory dispersion in isotropic absorbing media and for the natural rotatory dispersion in optically active absorbing media. In a few instances where sufficient data enabled calculation, the new magnetic rotation formula has given accurate agreement with experimental values, thereby accounting for the discrepancy previously noted between the observed Verdet angles and those calculated from a theory which neglected absorption.
