  8. The possibility of an orthoquinoid structure, with the heterocyclic sulfur forming a sulfonium base (as was hypothesized in the older literature7.) cannot be entirely dismissed, although the evidence seems to be against it.7(i).

  18. Adams and Rosenstein (cf. reference 17) also observed irreversible bleaching in acid solution of crystal violet, and studied the kinetics of the bleaching process. In this case the bleaching in acid solutions seemed to be independent of the anion.
  19. Beilstein reports that alkaline solutions of thionine are slowly transformed into [STRUCTURE of Thionolin] [STRUCTURE of Thionol] Both of these reaction products are, however, strongly colored.
  20. We are indebted to Professor L. J. Gillespie and Dr. S. D. Stookey of this laboratory for the special Pd used in these experiments.
