Parlodion membranes 50 to 1000 Å A thick have been prepared by deposition of isoamyl acetate solutions on the air-water interface under conditions of controlled evaporation. Capacitance and resistance measurements have established the integrity of large areas of these membranes. The former also provides corroboration of the thickness estimated from the amounts of parlodion deposited.
