Excerpt from The Annals of Hygiene, Vol. 1: July 15, 1884 From a German Pharmaceutical journal we learn that much attention has been given to cases of skin poison ing by arsenical dyes; but the fact that antimony may also cause unpleasant symptoms is not so well known. C. Bischoff has recently published a paper in the Repertorium Anal. Chemie, in which he says that large quantities of tartar emetic are employed, in combina tion with tannin, for fixing the aniline dyes upon cotton fabrics. As a rule, the yarn is passed first through a sumac bath, and then through a dye bath con taining a solution of tartar emetic. A tannate of antimony is formed, which adheres firmly to the fiber, and serves to mordant the dye upon it. A ma jority of the better quality of cotton goods, stockings, etc., that are fast colors, dyed with aniline, at present contain antimony.
