J. E. Hansen
1922 Journal of The American Ceramic Society  
Objections to the Usual Type of Molecular Formula.-The shortcomings, disadvantages and objections to the usual type of molecular formula are reviewed, and it is shown by calculation back to the batch mixture how the molecular formula may be misinterpreted. New Type of Molecular Formula Proposed.-The following type of an empirical formula is proposed. Advantages of New Type.-The advantages of this new type of formula are that (1) it presents its data in the usual simple and graphic manner; (2)
