Excerpt from The Formation of Addition Compounds Between Formic Acid and Metallic Formates: A Discussion of the Factors Affecting the Stability of These Compounds It is seen that on the basis of the above assumption the strength of the base RX should diminish to a minimum and then increase again, as R is varied from one extreme of the electromotive series to the other. Those properties which are usually associated with the term strength - extent of ioniza tion (compound formation), and, as will be seen from the sequel, solubility, should undergo concomitant variation. The experimental work to be described, Will seek to establish the validity of this argument. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
