Abstract

In this investigation the transmission and scattering of light by the silicic acid gel forming mixtures have been studies during the process of gel formation in an effort to extend the work already done in this laboratory on the structure of silicic acid gels. The intensity of the transmitted and scattered light had been measured in terms of galvanometer deflections using a photoelectric tube circuit. An attempt had been made to utilize these results in elucidating the changes in size and number of the colloidal particles which take place in gel formation.
