Solid and liquid iron oxides exhibit characteristics of semiconductors. The semiconductive behavior also features in some slags containing iron oxide. This paper aims at highlighting some of the experimental indications of the role of semiconductivity in electrical conduction, the chemical diffusion and in reaction kinetics at slag surfaces. It is not a thorough review of the subject matter but an attempt at shedding some light on the connection between these properties.
