The studies discussed in this report are supplementary to the work being done at Union College on silicic acid gels. In as much data has been taken in this work using pH as determined by the quinhydrone electrode, it was desired that a study be made of the effect of quinhydrone on the gel and of gel on the quinhydrone determinations. The pH of gels during their setting has been worked on and the first part of the experiment deals with the effect of quinhydrone on the time of set of silicic acid gel. Then it was desired to know wether a gel had any effect on the determination of the pH by means of the quinhydrone set up. It had been thought that there was no effect in either case but there was no experiemtnal evidence to show proof.
