Abstract

The problem of how electrical conductivity of colloidal sols changes during setting has been a source of much speculation for a long time. Work has been done upon a variety of sols and gels with various and oftentimes conflicting results. The purpose of this investigation was to find out whether the conductivity of a silicic acid sol changes during setting or not; and, if so, how it varies. It was also hoped that the results might lead definitely to some theory of gelation and gel structure.
