During the preparation of anomalous material from water, a residue is found in the capillary tubes even though the tubes themselves had been cleaned prior to the preparation. The total quantity of elements other than H. and O is smaller for the preparations from cleaned tubes than either the first tube washings with water or the preparations from uncleaned tubes. All of the elements found to be present in either the water washings of capillary tubes or in preparations from uncleaned tubes were detected in the preparations from cleaned tubes. All tube washings and preparations give roughly equivalent infrared spectra. However, there are distinct and consistent difference in the exact frequencies of these absorption bands between the spectra of liquid water tube washings and the spectra of anomalous material preparation, whether from cleaned or uncleaned tubes. Preparation of anomalous material from 3 percent H2O2 solutions gave a material with an infrared spectrum which differed in some frequencies from the spectrum of preparations from 100 percent H2O. Three groups of water extractions of crushed glass give spectral differences which are reflected by changes in elemental composition.
