Not illustrated. 1873 edition. Excerpt: ...crystallizes in large, white needles, fuses at 96, and boils at 286. Disulphodiphenylicacid, C12H8(S02.OH)2, is formed by dissolving diphenyl in concentrated sulphuric acid. Long, colorless prisms, that fuse at 72.5. Very easily soluble in water. The potassium salt, C12H8.S206E? + 2 JH20, crystallizes in large, colorless prisms, moderately difficultly soluble in cold water. The barium and lead salts are insoluble in water. Diphenylbenzene, C18H14 = C6H4 j gF Ig pr0. duced like diphenyl by the action of sodium on a mixture of mono-and dibrombenzene.--Colorless, crystalline mass. Fusing point, 205; boiling point, 400. Mercuryphenyl, (C6H5)2Hg. Is produced, when, to a solution of monobrombenzene in benzene, sodiumamalgam is added, and the whole then heated for a few hours in connection with an inverted condenser; the formation takes place particularly easily in the presence of a little acetic ether. (See Mercury ethyl, p. 62).--Colorless, rhombic prisms, that become yellow in contact with the air. Fusing point, 120. Insoluble in water, easily soluble in chloroform, carbon bisulphide, and benzene, more difficultly in ether and boiling alcohol. When carefully heated, it can be partially sublimed without decomposition; it is, however, partially resolved into mercury, benzene, diphenyl, and carbon. Treated with two molecules chlorine, bromine, or iodine, it is resolved into monochlor-, brom-, or iodobenzene, and mercury chloride, bromide, or iodide; treated with only one molecule of the halogenes, or heated with mercury chloride, bromide, or iodide and alcohol at 110, it is converted into mercurymonophenyl chloride, C6H5.Hg.Cl (rhombic plates, fusing point, 250), bromide, C6H5.Hg.Br (rhombic plates, fusing point, 275-276), and iodide, C6H5.Hg.I (rhombic...
