Abstract: We investigate the thermoelectric effect for baryon rich plasma produced in heavy ion collision experiments. We estimate the associated Seebeck coefficient for the hadronic matter. Using kinetic theory within relaxation time approximation we calculate the Seebeck coefficient of a hadronic medium with a temperature gradient. The calculation is performed for hadronic matter modeled by the hadron resonance gas model with hadrons and resonance states up to a cutoff in the mass as 2.25 GeV. We argue that the thermoelectric current produced by such effect can produce a magnetic field in heavy ion collision experiments.
