The effects of various solvents on cobalt soaps were investigated. The solubility of cobalt soap was low in general. In pyridine and bromoform, it showed a considerable value. In a hot state, several solvents dissolved cobalt soaps fairly well. In some solvents, jellies were obtained on cooling. In other solvents, the color changed to a dirty yellow. Absorption spectra showed that the absorption maxima in these solutions were displaced for a shorter wavelength. This means that a change of the electronic configuration occurred.
Adsorption of water vapor on cobalt soaps was measured. Red dihydrate seemed to adsorb much more water vapor than blue anhydrate.
