Page 245 - Macerate the hellebore for forty-eight hours in fifteen fluid ounces of the spirit, in a closed vessel, agitating occasionally ; then transfer to a percolator, and, when the fluid ceases to pass, continue the percolation with the remaining five ounces of spirit.
Page 2 - Macerate the. aconite root for forty-eight hours in fifteen fluid ounces of the spirit, in a closed vessel, agitating occasionally ; then transfer to a percolator ; and when the fluid ceases to pass, continue the percolation with the remaining five ounces of spirit.
Page 186 - Macerate the aconite root for forty-eight hours, in fifteen ounces of the spirit, in a close vessel, agitating occasionally ; then transfer to a percolator, and, when the fluid ceases to pass, pour into the percolator the remaining five ounces of the spirit. As soon as the percolation is completed, subject the contents of the percolator to pressure, filter the products, mix the liquids, and add sufficient rectified spirit to make up one pint.
Page 73 - Macerate the bean for forty-eight hours with one pint of the spirit in a close vessel, agitating occasionally, then transfer to a percolator, and when the fluid ceases to pass, add the remainder of the spirit so that it may slowly percolate through the powder. Subject the residue of the bean to pressure, adding the pressed liquid to the product of the percolation...
Page 2 - A white, usually amorphous, solid, soluble in 150 parts of cold, and 50 of hot water, and much more soluble in alcohol and in ether; strongly alkaline to reddened litmus, neutralising acids, and precipitated from them by the caustic alkalies, but not by carbonate of ammonia or the bicarbonate* of soda or potash. It melts with heat, and burns with a smoky flame, leaving no residue when burned with free access of air.
Page 122 - Colourless flat rhombic prisms, feebly bitter, fusible and sublimable by a moderate heat ; scarcely soluble in cold water, sparingly in boiling water, but abundantly in chloroform and in boiling water and in boiling rectified spirit. Sunlight renders it yellow ; not dissolved by diluted mineral acids ; entirely destructible by a red heat with free access of air.
Page 394 - Sulphuric Acid, a sufficiency : place the Sulphide of Iron and the Water in a gas.bottle closed with a cork perforated by two holes, through one of which passes air.tight a funnel tube of sufficient length to dip into the water, and through the other a tube for giving exit to the gas. Through the former pour from time to time a little of the Acid, so as to develope the Sulphuretted Hydrogen as it may be required.
Page 218 - Characters. — Hard and brittle, yet gradually taking the form of the vessel in which it is kept ; opaque, varying in colour, but generally dull reddish-brown ; of a peculiar, somewhat empyreumatic perfumed odour, and aromatic taste, without bitterness ; free from vesicles ; gives off no water when heated.
