I. CHEMISTRY. LETTER FROM R. HARE.M.D., PROFESSOR OF CHEMISTRY IN THE UNIVERSITY OF PONNA, TO THE EDITORS OF qTHE CHEMIST, q WITH SOME STRICTURES ON THE COMMUNICATION OF MR. REUBEN PHILLIPS. Messrs. Editors, I Have read in The Chemist for March last a communication from Mr. Reuben Phillips. The object of that communication is to show that the electrolytic experiments of Daniell are such as to justify the inference that the amphide salts consist of a compound radical in union with a metal, notwithstanding my effort 10 prove the contrary. Mr. Phillips uses the following language: qDuring the electrolysis of water, and such like simple combinations, it may be conceived that oxygen is liberated on the anode, while the hydrogen passes on to the cathode; or hydrogen may be first produced on the cathode, and the oxygen may pass on from molecule to molecule, to the anode; or both efTects may be simultaneously produced.q In the first place, I deny that any one of Mr. Phillips's cases can occur; I deny that cither hydrogen, or oxygen, or both, can correctly be said to pass from one electrode to the other. At all events, there is no necessity for this species of locomotion. The phenomena may be sufficiently accounted for, if ire suppose that from one extremity of a roip of atoms of water existing between the electrodes, an atom of oxygen is taken, from the other extremity, an atom of hydrogen: while at th...This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text.
