A series of experiments was performed to observe the effects of salt concentration differences across a thin layer of homo-ionic montmorillonite. The water pressure difference, concentration difference, and voltage difference measured with electrodes reversible to the anion were observed as functions of time. A qualitative explanation of the observations is proposed.
