Thus, common salt (NaCl) certainly contains no Chlorohydric acid (HCl); but the Chlorine in the salt is the representative of the acid mentioned. So, Potassic nitrate (KN03) certainly contains no Nitric acid (HN03); but it contains N03, which is a group of elements contained in Nitric acid, and which group is the representative ol Nitric acid. But it has arisen--from the inconvenience attending the use of such terms as representative, acid radicle, etc.--that chemists commonly speak of salts as containing acids. Thus, sulphates are spoken of as containing Sulphuric acid, phosphates as containing Phosphoric acid, and so on. 129. The more common acid radicles are divided into six Groups. In testing for acid radicles, no strictly continuous processes of isolation from a single portion of substance can be used; most of the tests are performed upon separate porfions of the original substance, set aside to this use. FIRST GROUP OF ACIDS. THE DEFLAGRATING ACIDS. 130. This group includes those acids whose salts readily deflagrate, when heated on charcoal. It consists of--Nitric acid, HNO, . Chloric acid, H CI O3. Preliminary Tests. 131. Heat upon charcoal a portion of the dry salt. (If the substance is not a salt, evaporate a portion of the solution to dryness, and test the residue.) If deflagration ensues, it indicates the probable presence of a Nitrate or a Chlorate. The deflagration is rapid combustion of the coal, due to the fact that the salts, in question, contain large amounts of oxygen, held by feeble affinity. 2 K N Os + C (heated) = K2CO3 + N2 O3. 2KCIO3 + 3 C (heated) = 2 K CI + 3 C 02. 132.
