Thus each tablet of Syphilodol contains approximately, 3⁄4 grain of mercurous iodid.
With mercurous nitrate, the platinocyanide of potassium forms a thick smalt blue, and the platinidcyanide a dark blue precipitate.
mercurous Salts, treated with iodide of potassium, give a green mercurous iodide; Mercuric, a scarlet.
In the wet way it is obtained by precipitating a mercurous salt with hydrochloric acid.
All these reactions are typical of mercurous iodid—yellow iodid of mercury.
The molecular weight of mercurous chloride has given occasion for much discussion.
The iodid and mercury were in proportions comparable to mercurous iodid.
By precipitating a solution of mercurous nitrate by another of potassium bromide.
The principle of the method is based upon the fact that guanidine is precipitated by mercurous oxide.
This falls as a black precipitate when a solution of mercurous nitrate is treated with sulphuretted hydrogen or ammonium sulphide.

Relating to or containing mercury, especially with a valence of 1.
Containing mercury, especially mercury with a valence of 1. Compare mercuric.
