Experiments have been initiated to investigate the scintillation properties of various liquids by studying the light flashes due to ionizing particles. Measurements have been made to date on the following solutions and liquids: (a) naphthalene in benzene; (b) naphthalene plus anthracene in benzene; (c) terphenyl in benzene; (d) dibenzyl in ether; (e) anthracene plus naphthalene in xylene; (f) terphenyl in xylene, (g) benzene, (h) ether, (i) xylene, and (j) melted dibenzyl.
