Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to share with me your opinion concerning the 100% equivalency of the following sentences?
1.1. This process consists in treating acetone with a solution of sodium hypo chloride.
1.2. This process consists in treatment of acetone with solution of sodium hypo chloride.
2.1. There is no hope of our getting high yields in the near future.
2.2. There is no hope that we shall get high yields in the near future.
Thank you for your efforts.
But I would like someone else to comment further on these remarks.
PS Not a native speaker
I'm not a teacher, but I'm a native speaker and a chemistry student.
I think you should write/say the process consists of treating or the process consists of the treatment. These sound equivalent.
The last two sentences sound equivalent to me, but in America we would drop the "our" and replace the "shall" with "will". But if you do drop the "our", it might only be equivalent in context.
Also, do you mean sodium hypochlorite? You're referring to a haloform reaction, right?
The president is given a special treatment during his visit.
A soldier should be given the treatment he deserves.
However, my personal opinion is, it can be a matter of preference.
