Interpretations of Hamlet's delay

Description: Perhaps the most universally discussed problem in the interpretation of the character of Hamlet is the reason for his delay in carrying out the Ghost's commands and revenging the murder of his father. Certainly Shakespeare makes no mention of the reason for Hamlet's delay. The fact that critics have never been able to untangle this mystery proves that the solution is not presented in an obvious form in the play.

The Adsorption of Radioactive Isotopes on Precipitates

Description: This thesis concerns the investigation of radioisotopes as indicators for precipitation reactions. As a precipitate forms in the presence of a radioisotope, adsorption may take place on its surface. If this adsorption changes markedly at the stoichiometric point it will be possible to use this variation as an indicator for the reaction.

Hydantoins as Anticonvulsants. VI. 5-Substituted-Alkoxy Derivatives of 5-Phenylhydantoin

Description: No derivatives of 5-phenylhydantoin with an oxygen atom attached directly in the five position of the hydantoin nucleus have been found in the literature. It was therefore considered of interest to synthesize a series of compounds of this type to determine the effect of the change of the position of the oxygen atom on anticonvulsant activity.
