  • Symbol question.svg Length & date check out. The hook is largely supported by online material (the word "senior" being the exception). No copyright problems with online sources are obvious. The article is sufficiently referenced on the whole, but the statement that he "showed early promise in his education" needs to be cited to something other than his autobiographical interview or removed. The image shows up well at the size and has an appropriate license, though it is required to credit the source with the text "Courtesy of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S. Dept. of Energy." which should probably be added to the alt text. QPQ is still ongoing. Espresso Addict (talk) 14:27, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
  • "Senior chemist" can be found here, I've added this google books link to the reference used in the article so people can verify it online. I removed the "early promise" bit from the article. James086Talk 14:52, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Could you rephrase the bit about the glass electrode? It's perilously close to the memorial text you've linked. I'd do it myself but I can't think of another way of putting it. Espresso Addict (talk) 15:14, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Thanks. I think all is ok to go now, assuming the QPQ gets completed in due course. Espresso Addict (talk) 16:03, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
