Abstract: This paper examines the coalgebra structure on $ k{[G]^ \circ }$ and relates it to the group theoretic properties of $ G$. In particular it is shown that there is an intimate relation between $ k[G]$ being proper and $ G$ being residually finite. We use this to derive a series of conditions on the group to guarantee it being residually finite.
