Hydrochloric acid, sulphuretted hydrogen and sulphurous acid are rapidly oxidized by chloric acid.
If we suppose these ten parts, by weight of solid matter, to be chloric acid, with 3.87 per cent.
Chlorates may be prepared by dissolving the hydrate or oxide in chloric acid, and crystallising.
The aqueous solution can be concentrated in vacuo over sulphuric acid until it contains 40% of chloric acid.
