|Title||Paper, 'On a new method of generating electricity' by J A Kendall|
|Creator||Kendall; J A (fl 1883)|
|Description||Kendall writes: 'In 1863 Deville and Troost announced their discovery that certain metals were permeable by hydrogen at a red heat. This discovery, as is well known, was verified by Graham, who made extended researches on the subject. A bout three years ago it occurred to the author that a red-hot platinum plate, through which hydrogen was passing, might be made to serve as an element of a galvanic combination, and early in 1881 some experiments were tried with this object.'|
