John Dobson's research

[Hilyard John Eglinton Dobson was the first holder of the lectureship in physical chemistry, one of three chemistry posts created during the foundation of the Department of Science at Durham in 1924. (For the others, see research-group leaders: Macbeth, Masson.) Dobson left in 1927.

In 1924, Mr Dobson, while at University College London, published an influential paper with Professor Irvine Masson (see research-group leaders) that related the partial pressures of hydrogen chloride and water above aqueous hydrogen chloride to the activity of the solution's components and to the EMF of cells containing aqueous hydrogen chloride. While at Durham he published two further papers, as sole author, about the measurement and significance of partial pressures. There the record of his work in any academic chemistry institution stops.
