        Kinetics of MeOH decomposition on solid and liquid Zn were examined in greater detail.  The order of the reaction lies between zero and on both solid and liquid.  The heat of activation is approximately 30,000 cal. per gm.-mol.  The reaction is mainly dehydrogenation.  Unsuccessful attempts to investigate certain other reactions on liquid metals are described.
