The temperature dependences of the electrical conductivity, the thermoelectric power, and the magnetic susceptibility of sintered samples of tin dioxide, doped with antimony and zinc oxides, were measured in air in the 20–1300°C temperature range. At attempt is made, on the basis of these measurements, to explain the changes in the above properties, in samples of different composition, by a change in the valence of the added impurity.
