Lot 353: Uncommon AMS, signed at the top, "Linus Pauling," one page, 8 x 11, no date. An intriguing page of a scientific manuscript, in full: "This effect of inhibition of resonance is seen clearly in the observed bond lengths. In salts of phosphoric acid in which the four oxygen atoms are equivalent the bond length is 154 pm, corresponding to the expected amount of the double-bond character. In polyphosphates, however, the P-O-P bonds are about 162 pm long, corresponding to a much smaller amount of double-bond character, and the other bonds are 149 pm long." In fine condition. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 456 Wednesday, 15th July 2015 Estimate: $200-400
