The crystals of silicotetraphenylamide are perfectly colourless short prism s of considerable size. They m elt a t 136-137° to a transparent liquid, which can be heated to 210° w ithout decomposition. On cooling this liquid solidifies to a transparent glass which, like the original crystals, can be easily decomposed by water. If silicotetraphenylamide be heated under diminished pressure (about 80 mm.), it affords a distillate of aniline, and leaves a residue which seems to be the silicon

The detailed investigation of the new substance and its derivatives is in active progress, and promises to throw light on the hitherto obscure relations of silicon and nitrogen. I have reason to believe th a t the homologues of aniline, and certain other analogous nitrogen compounds, act like excess o f aniline on the silicon haloids, and produce substances sim ilar to the subject of this note. These reactions are also being investigated in my laboratory. 40 Prof. J. A. Ewing. [Nov. 22, * * Acta Mathenoatica,' vol. 7.
