Abstract

WHILE owing to helium's absence of chemical affinities it might at first sight be imagined that its separation from a mixture of other gases could best be carried out by effecting chemical changes in the latter, in only a very few cases is this a practical procedure. Indeed, at the present time all helium, which is being recovered from natural gas, is obtained by physical means.
