Anomalous discharge currents were observed in crystals of 5-chlorosalicylideneaniline which had been subjected to electric fields of 1200 v cm-1 for periods ranging from 2 min to 17 h. Discharge currents, measured over the range 20-95°C, were found to increase with increasing temperature. The discharge currents may be related to the highly polar structure of the material.
