Not illustrated. 1865 edition. Excerpt: ...Salts Peligot, supposed to be of the form U2Oj: St, ford us an instance. But this theory is not estalished by facts as respects any of the metallic ilts. In all such cases, too, the higher salts ap?ar to contain feebler bases than the salts iii which ic same metal is united with a smaller quantity of alogen. But these Salts of Tellurethyl contain base of energy far greater than that of Ethyl, "he basicity of Ethyl does not appear under the sual chemical reactions; its oxide is not alkaline, t is not soluble in acids, it does not combine diectly with the epistyles. But Tellurethyl, though, n accordance with its carbonous nature, it is oily, md insoluble in water, is readily taken up by Nine Acid, just as would happen to a basic metal, brming the solution of a true saline nitrate nitrate C4H5;Te: O;NO6; from which H: S and H: C1 precipitate );Te: S and l;Te: Cl. Again, the oxide of the new base, which is obtainable by double decomposition from some of its other salts, or by direct oxidation of the base, is soluble in water, alkaline in reaction, absorbs ('(), . and even displaces, under certain circumstances, H3N from its salts, --thus giving us evidences of the energy of its basic member by new actions which none a the bases we have yet considered are competent U display. It is certainly strange that we shcrakj find these facilities conferred upon Ethyl by Telia rium, or on Te. by M, when neither of these moJe cules alone possesses more than the germs of them Tellurium itself being of a type distinctly antago iiist to the basic nature. selenium 275. Selenium imitates its congener Te. in thi b-sic. its Ethyl-salt assumes basic properties, so that wt have several compounds of the form Ji;Se: St These however are not yet so fully known as tfc...
