Titration curves of wool with 18 strong acids at 0°, 25°, or 50° C have been added to the data for 19 others presented earlier. Several have been investigated at more than one t emperature. The reversibility of the equilibria m easured has been demonstrated quantitatively. N ew anion-wool dissociation constants, based on modifications of equations previously used to calculate anion-wool affinities, are tabulated for 33 anions, and h eats of dissociation of a few anionwool complexes are also
more » ... plexes are also given. The previously reported t endency of affinity to rise with molecular-weight is confirmed ; fairly consist ent relationships between the affinity and the molecular weights of strong organic acids appear.
