The metal is very reactive chemically.
Iron is very reactive chemically.
The hydroxyl group is more reactive than in the phenols, the naphthols being converted into naphthylamines by the action of ammonia, and forming ethers and esters much more readily.
The metal, however, is not in great demand, for it is generally found that sodium, which is cheaper, and, weight for weight, more reactive, will fulfil any purpose for which potassium may be desired.
- The development of active immunity by the above methods is essentially the result of a reactive process on the part of the cells of the body, though as yet we know little of its real nature.
In view of all the facts it must be admitted that the agglutinins and immune bodies are the result of corresponding reactive processes, and are probably related to one another.
Stock (Ber., 1909, 42, 4510), who points out that ordinary red phosphorus melts at 605°-610°, whilst Hittorf's melts at 620°; moreover, the latter is less reactive than the former at high temperatures.
Dihydroxy-ammonia or nitroxyl, NH(OH) 2, a very unstable and highly reactive substance, has been especially studied by A.
In the development of the United States the influence of Hamiltonian nationalism and Jeffersonian democracy has been a reactive union; but changed conditions since Hamilton's time, and particularly since the Civil War, are likely to create misconceptions as to Hamilton's position in his own day.
It liquefies at 7° C. It is an exceedingly reactive compound, combining with water to form malonic acid, with hydrogen chloride to form malonyl chloride, and with ammonia to form malonamide.
Group is very reactive and behaves in a similar manner to the grouping CO CH 2 CO in open chain compounds, e.g.
That he'd grown a little more thoughtful and a little less reactive in how he handled adversity impressed Gabe.
It is a colourless liquid which boils at 247° C. The -CH 3 group is very reactive, condensing readily with aldehydes and with phthalic anhydride.
