The specific electrical resistivity, absolute differential thermo-emf, Hall coefficient, thermal conductivity, and microhardness have been measured on specimens of pyrolytic boron carbide having theoretical density and a compact laminar-columnar structure. It is suggested that the p-conduction in boron carbide is due to the partial replacement of carbon atoms in boron carbide of the limiting composition B4C by boron atoms which have a lower valence.
