    • Abstract


      Sodium chlorate and sodium bromate crystals of thes ame structural configuration have opposite senses of optical rotation. It is also known that these halates exhibit continuous miscibility in solid solution. In the present work, the conjecture of Bijvoet that in the solid solution of these halates, the crystalline configuration would continue itself, has been directly verified by two approaches: (i) by optical rotation measurements on single crystals which show an annulling trend in proportion with composition and (ii) by measuremerts of Bijvoet inequality for several reflections from a single crystal (rich in chlorate) which shows an agreeable trend with the calculated values for chlorate.
