Unpublished paper, 'On chemical affinity and the solubility of the sulphate of baryta [barium sulphate] in acid liquors' by Frederick Crace Calvert

Reference number: AP/36/7

Date: 1855

Description

Calvert observes that sulphate of baryta is not an insoluble salt. He suggests that the solubility of sulphate of baryta is affected in a higher degree by the bulk of the acid than by its strength.

Subject: Analytical chemistry
