This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1878 edition. Excerpt: ...The flask must be kept full of hydrogen during the digestion to prevent oxidation of the ferrous oxide by the oxygen of the air. Hydrochloric or sulphuric acid is added to the mixture until the ferrous and ferric oxides are completely dissolved, leaving the mercu. rous chloride which forms perfectly white. The solution is then diluted to the mark, shaken, a portion filtered through a dry filter, measured out with a pipette, and the excess of ferrous salt estimated with bichromate. The reaction between the ferrous hydrate and the mercuric oxide in the alkaline solution is as follows: Mohr, Titrirmethode. 2HgO + 2Fe(OH)2 + H,0 = Hg,0 + Fe, (OH), Ferrous ammonium sulphate x.5102 = Hg "x.6911 = HgC1, Mercurous salts may be converted into mercuric chloride by precipitating them as mercurous chloride by means of a solution of sodium chloride, washing the chloride, adding sodium hydrate, and passing chlorine through the solution. The solution is then acidified with hydrochloric acid and evaporated to expel the excess of chlorine. Mercuric salts are converted into the chloride by evaporating with hydrochloric acid. In evaporating solutions of mercuric chloride, care must be taken not to allow them to boil, as in that case some of the chloride goes off with the steam. (Fresenius.) With Potassium Cyanide The mercury must be present as mercuric chloride. Ammonia is added until a considerable amount of a white precipitate has formed (an excess of ammonia does no harm). A solution of potassium cyanide is then added until the precipitate re. dissolves and leaves the liquid perfectly clear. The strength of the standard potassium cyanide is best determined by titration in the same manner against a weighed amount of pure mercuric chloride. Since it decomposes...show more
