Abstract

The inadequacy of the approximate method of x-ray diffraction intensity computation in the case of liquids is illustrated by computations relative to n-paraffins. Warren apparently proved, by using Zernike and Prins theory, that the structure of the liquids is hexagonal parallel packing. These computations have been repeated and extended to larger scattering angles. Similar calculations were made for the parallel packing. Conclusive proof for either array was not found. Preference, however, due to peak position, should be given to the former. The work emphasizes the need for a better theoretical approach to the problem of liquid structure in explaining the scattering of x-rays.
