The study of this particular subject was made in the hope that it might lead to a more complete explanation of the manner of setting of gels. It was thought that by changing the pH during the time of set irregularities in the course of the setting of the gel might be found. It was thought, for example, that there might be a period during which the addition might have less effect than average, or a period where it would have a much greater than average effect. These periods might possibly have occurred at any part of the time of set.
