Abstract

This investigation was undertaken with the purpose of obtaining more data on the question of the existence of thermally reversible silicic acid gels, i.e., silicic acid gels which would reliquify on heating. Some work was done in the highly basic region at 21 degrees and 40 degrees. An attempt was made to use the Leads and Northrup glass electrode apparatus present in the Union College Chemical Laboratory which, however, failed, although Spittle using this apparatus, apparently met with some success. In order to obtain data on the change of time of set with temperature of gels having the same composition as well as providing a convenient reference for such gels.
