Abstract : Solutions of quaternary ammonium slats in polymeric materials exhibit unusually high temperature coefficients of electrical conductivity. Experiments are described which indicate that conduction might be produced through a combination of electronic and ionic mechanisms. The materials studied show promise as 'throw-away thermistors'. The results shed some light on the mode of behavior of the recently developed coated wire ion selective electrodes. (Author-PL)
