The paper records the magneto-optic rotation and the dispersion for a large number of ionic solutions. From these data the magneto-optic anomaly for these solutions have been evaluated. The ionic rotation for the different substances have also been estimated. Amongst the substances studied are halides, nitrates, sulphates, hydroxides, chlorates, bromates and iodates of monovalent and divalent elements. The anomaly in some pure acids have also been determined. The magneto-optic anomaly for about twenty-three gases and vapours have been calculated from the data given in Landolt and Bornstein’s tables. It is found that the presence of ions with covalent linkages decreases the value of the anomaly for water, the decrease being greater if the strength of the covalent bond is greater. In the case of gases also the value of the anomaly is lower for gases in which the strength of the bonds is greater. There are some vapours that do not follow this rule.
