Previous contributions have been made by the writer and Professor Skinner on the isomers of primary normal alcohols and by the writer on normal paraffins. The difference between the normal compounds and isomers are shown by displacements of the chief diffraction peak in amounts indicated by increases in the mean diameter of the molecule. The diameters of the normal alcohols and of the normal paraffins have been found and published.
