Investigations made thus far would indicate t h a t the American permutit, except the prepared Folin permutit, will not quantitatively remove ammonia. German permutit has proved very satisfactory, and indications are t h a t the English permutit is equally efficient. There is a possibility t h a t Refinite and Boromite may possess similar properties.
