The preparation of anomalous materials by condensation in five capillaries was investigated under varied conditions of temperature, pressure and atmospheric composition. These experiments indicated that a saturated atmosphere of water vapor and a relatively high area of glass surface are primary requisites. Attempts were made to form anomalous materials by condensation on glass wool. During a methanol experiment of this type, sodium methylcarbonate was isolated. It was concluded that the interaction of the room air particularly the carbon dioxide with the liquid and glass is important in the formation of anomalous substances. Further experiments with glass wools showed that anomalous materials may be prepared by the interaction of liquids with glass.
