The thermophoretic interaction of heat releasing particles was investigated. The force was caused by the induced temperature gradient which was propotional to the rate of heat release by the particle. A condition for mutual attraction of two spherical heat releasing particles was determined and an expression for the thermophoretic force acting at the particles was derived.
