7 The thermoelectric effect The mobility of the H+ ions in ice is much greater than that of the OH− ions and they both increase with temperature. In a block of ice with a temperature gradient down its length, the warmer end would acquire a net negative charge due to the faster diffusion of H+ ions away from that end. If two pieces of ice at different temperature were brought into momentary contact they would separate with the warmer carrying a net negative charge. Latham and Mason [36] calculated that a potential difference of about 2 T mV would be set up across the ends of a piece of ice having a steady temperature difference of T ◦ C.
