The following work was undertaken at the suggestion of Dr. W. S. Hendrixson, to whom I am indebted for advice and assistance in the work. The solvent action of the thiosulphates on the halides of silver has long been known, and the fact is almost daily turned to account in the laboratory, and though the reaction has been quantitatively studied to some extent, an examination of the literature shows that no very satisfactory theory of the nature of the reaction and the complexes formed in solution has been established.
