The method of exciting band spectra by explosion mixtures has wide applicability and should lead to the study of many new systems;The spectrum of MgS has been excited by this method and a band system obtained which degrades to the red;The heat of dissociation of the MgS molecule in two different states of excitation has been calculated;The spectrum of PbS molecules is easily photographed by the explosion method. The spectrum of PbS which resembles that of PbO is not easily analyzed;The advantages outweigh the disadvantages of the method for production of many spectra in the longer wavelength regions.
