Solutions of Their Salts. 11. BY LOUIS KAHLENBERG. J. Phys. Chem., 4, 7og-714.--This is a continuation of previous work (this Rev., 6, I I ) , throwing doubt on the applicability of Nernst's theory to cells composed of non-aqueous solutions. Silver nitrate i n pyridine and in acetonitrile and cadmium iodide in acetonitrile were the solutions used. As only five concentration cells were measured and no account taken of the P.D. at the liquid-liquid junction in the computation, further experiments
... further experiments are certainly desirable before discarding Nernst's theory, or questioning its applicability even in the case of aqueous solutions." Gas-Polarization in Lead Accumulators. BY C. J. REED. J. Phys. Chem., 5 , 1-17.--The author attempts to disprove the results and conclusions published by Nernst and Dolezalek (Ztschr. f i i y Elec. Chem., goo). For details of the calculations and experiments reference must be made to the article. the indicators are suitable with proper care and skill, but that if uniformity of results within very narrow limits is desired the preference should be given to erythrosine. BY W. P. MASON. J . A m . Chem SOL., 21, 516-517.-The turbidity of the water is compared with that of a standard kaolin solution ( I gram per liter) in a 2-foot tube and is expressed in parts per million.
