Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 82 : Series B, Containing Papers of a Biological Character (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 82: Series B, Containing Papers of a Biological Character The analyses were carried out in the Caius College Chemical Laboratory, and my thanks are due to Dr. Ruhemann, of Caius College, for placing his apparatus at my disposal, and giving me every facility. If photosynthesis resulted in the accumulation of some known single substance, the increase of dry weight could be accurately calculated from the gain of carbon.
