Hydrogen sulfide has been found to act more like an organic solvent than as an inorganic one in the character of the substances that are soluble in it. As a result, most of its solutions are nonconductors, but it has been found that the halides of the phosphorous family do conduct, with the exception of bismuth which forms an insoluble compound with the hydrogen sulfide. With the other elements of the family the amount of conductance increases with the atomic weight of the element, the antimony chloride being of the order of 10,000 times that of the phosphorus.
