Antimonic acid is a pale yellow powder, prepared by oxidating oxide of antimony by nitric acid, driving off the excess of nitric acid by a heat short of redness. Antimony in solution is detected by sulphuretted hydrogen, which precipitates an orange-yellow sulphuret, easily distinguished from orpiment by not being volatile, and from sul- ANALYSIS OF NAPLES YELLOW, URANIUM, CERIUM, ...

Antimonic acid is a pale-yellow powder, not soluble in water, but soluble in potash and soda, with which it forms antimoniates, which, however, are not stable , and are. decomposed by almost any other acid or salt. The precipitates formed by re-agents with salts of antimony are nearly all white, but when a sulphuret of any of the alkalis is added to a solution of antimony, a beautiful golden yellow precipitate is formed. Uranium (U 60.) This rare metal is a component of the mineral named ...

A Digest of Medical Literature by Isaac Hays

Antimonic acid is an insoluble, tasteless powder, of a pale yellow colour when pure, but deep yellow when contaminated with nitric acid. When exposed to a full red heat, it loses oxygen, and is converted into antimonious acid. It is soluble in a boiling solution of caustic potassa, from which it may be precipitated by acids as a white hydrate, in which state it is slightly soluble in water and reddens litmus. It consists of one equivalent of antimony 64.6, and two and a half of oxygen 20 = 84.6.

Antimonic acid is the peroxide of antimony. 17. It is formed when the metal in powder is ignited with six times its weight of nitre in a silver crucible.— The excess of potash and nitre being afterwards separated with hot water, the antimoniate of potash is then to be decomposed by muriatic acid, when the antimonic acid, of a straw colour, will be obtained. 18. It is insoluble in water, but reddens vegetable blues. It does not combine with acids. At a red heat, oxygen is disengaged, and ...
