As this piece of research essentially is a check Pomatti’s (1) only half as many points were taken. The time of set of silicic acid gels was carefully taken as the alkalinity of the medium was allowed to increase while the total volume of the gel was maintained constant. The runs were taken at three different temperatures so that temperature effects could be observed. Naturally enough, the pH’s of the gels were taken to place this work on quantitative basis. All pH measurements were accomplished by means of the colorimetric method which was first employed by Pomatti.
