Gore continues his research into fluoride of silver (see AP/52/4 and AP/53/4). This paper contains an exhaustive account of the behaviour of argentic fluoride in vessels of platinum, carbon, and various fluorides in contact with chlorine, bromine, and iodine at various temperatures. When argentic fluoride is completely decomposed by chlorine in platinum vessels at a red heat, the reaction agrees with the following equation: 4AgF+ 4Cl + Pt = 4AgCl, PtF4.

Note on front reads 'A condensation of this paper was published'.
