Abstract

IN a previous letter1 we have shown that, in mercury carefully freed from gas ions, the First Benedicks effect exists with a positive sign, whereas in the presence of gas ions the effect had shown a negative sign. The influence of gas ions actually seems thoroughly to modify the thermoelectric properties of some metals.
