Abstract : A photopotentiometry system was devised and successfully operated. The photopotentials measured in the tris(oxalato)ferrate(III) system compare favorably with potentials calculated from the Nernst equation. The potentials are produced by a mechanism resembling a concentration cell with transference. The effects of temperature and concentration are well defined by the Nernst equation. The observed potential at any time during the irradiation is approximated by a potential calculated from the Nernst equation. (Author)
