Definitions for ideoelectrics or idioelectrics
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
Ideoelectrics or Idioelectrics
Bodies which become electric by friction. This was the old definition, the term originating with Gilbert. It was based on a misconception, as insulation is all that is requisite for frictional electrification, metals being thus electrified if held by insulating handles. The term is virtually obsolete; as far as it means anything it means insulating substances such as scaling wax, sulphur, or glass.
