Ever since Liesegane (1), rediscovered the phenomenon of rhythmic precipitation first due to Runge (2), the colloid chemists have been using their ingenuity in attempts to explain the factors responsible for the formation of Liesegang rings. The theories resulting from such investigation have not been entirely satisfactory. In recent years the problem has been taken up by the students of waye mechanics in hope of conquering that which has so far defined the chemists. It is hoped that by continuing the work of Bieleski (3) and Rothemich (4) with the probing electrode, one of the many theories concerning the phenomenon will be substantiated or an entirely new theory established.
