Excerpt: ... THIRD CHAPTER. SPECIAL REACTIONS FOR THE DETECTION OF CERTAIN SUBSTANCES WHEN IN COMBINATION WITH OTHERS. § 47. The preceding chapter and accompanying table show the changes which many of the simple chemical compounds undergo when heated, or when treated with the usual blow-pipe reagents. The reactions are sufficiently characteristic to distinguish the various compounds from each other, so that, when any of the' above named substances in a pure state is under examination, there is no difficulty to determine its nature. This, however, is not of frequent occurrence, and in the majority of cases the body to be tested will be of a more complex nature. The results of the experiments will vary accordingly. For instance, an ore of cobalt, containing iron, will not impart to the bead of Bx or S Ph in the O Fl a blue color, but a green one, resulting from the mixture of the blue of cobalt and the yellow of iron; lead, when accompanied by antimony, deposits a dark-yellow coating on Ch resembling that of bismuth, &c. In such cases we may often, by attentively observing all the phenomena which present themselves, and by carefully comparing the results obtained by the various experiments, detect many, if not all, of the components of the substance under examination. Sometimes we attain this end quicker by varying the order, or by introducing auxiliary agents into the series of experiments; and in other cases, again, it is only to be arrived at by subjecting the assay to treatments different from those mentioned in the preceding pages. This chapter contains the principal reactions for the detection of substances which require the application of peculiar agents, and the methods for ascertaining the presence of certain bodies when in combination with others.
