Dean was hoping to find it or at least telltale signs that a body had decomposed on this spot, but no such evidence was apparent.
Boron hydride has probably never been isolated in the pure condition; on heating boron trioxide with magnesium filings, a magnesium boride Mg 3 B 2 is obtained, and if this be decomposed with dilute hydrochloric acid a very evil-smelling gas, consisting of a mixture of hydrogen and boron hydride, is obtained.
It is decomposed by heat into the oxide and water, and is soluble in ammonia but not in excess of dilute potassium hydroxide; this latter property serves to distinguish it from zinc hydroxide.
It is of nocturnal and burrowing habits, and feeds on decomposed animal substances, larvae and termites.
Its power depends on the fact that it is slowly decomposed by the tissues, and free iodine given off.
It forms red crusts, is insoluble in cold water, but is decomposed by boiling water.
The original hypothesis of Baeyer suggested that the course of events is the following: the carbon dioxide is decomposed into carbon monoxide and oxygen, while water is simultaneously split up into hydrogen and oxygen; the hydrogen and the carbon monoxide unite to form formaldehyde and the oxygen is exhaled.
The formaldehyde at once undergoes a process of condensation oi- polymerization by the protoplasm of the plastid, while the hydrogen peroxide is said to be decomposed into water and free oxygen by another agency in the cell, of the nature of one of the enzymes of which we shall speak later.
So long as food is supplied the living substance is the seat of transformations which are continually proceeding, being partially decomposed and again constructed, the new food being incorporated into it.
They are not decomposed by boiling alkalis, but on heating with hydriodic acid they split into their components.
The most suitable soil is a light, sandy loam enriched with well decomposed manure, in a rather moist situation.
It is a yellow, microcrystalline powder, soluble in water, alcohol and chloroform, and forming readily decomposed salts with acids.
By heating the metal with chlorine, germanic chloride, GeCl4, is obtained as a colourless fuming liquid boiling at 86-87° C., it is decomposed by water forming a hydrated germanium dioxide.
It is decomposed by the halogens, with liberation of sulphur.
It is gradually decomposed by water: 2S 2 C1 2 + 3H 2 0 = 4HC1 + 2S + H2S203, the thiosulphuric acid produced in the primary reaction gradually decomposing into water, sulphur and sulphur dioxide.
It is decomposed by the influence of strong light or when strongly heated.
It is decomposed by water into hydrofluoric and sulphurous acids.
OH =S02C12+ H 2 SO It is a colourless fuming liquid which boils at 69° C. and which is readily decomposed by water into sulphuric and hydrochloric acids.
It boils at 162.6° and is decomposed violently by water.
It is decomposed by water with explosive violence.
It is a colourless, oily, fuming liquid which is decomposed by water into sulphuric and hydrochloric acids.
It is readily decomposed by water with formation of sulphurous, sulphuric and thiosulphuric acids, with simultaneous liberation of sulphur.
It is decomposed readily into sulphur trioxide and oxygen when heated.
The thiosulphates are readily decomposed by mineral acids with liberation of sulphur dioxide and precipitation of sulphur: Na 2 S 2 0 3 + 2HC1 = 2NaC1 + S + SO 2 + H 2 O.
The picrate so formed is then decomposed by ammonia.
Thus by transposition we may write the last equation as follows 2HI =H2+12+12200 cal., and thus express that hydriodic acid when decomposed into its elements evolves 12200 cal.
