(Phosphate solutions.)

This compound, originally introduced as a proprietary article, is now universally used as a medicine and at the fountain. Two forms, with and without Iron, are in common use.

Note - The same remarks as to Powdered Pumice will apply in this formula.

Without Iron-Or Simple

Phosphate of Lime.............

384 grains.

Phosphate of Magnesia.........

256 grains.

Phosphate of Potassa...........

192 grains.

Phosphoric Acid (60 per cent) . . .

640 minims.

Water (sufficient to make) .......

1 pint.

With Iron - Or Compound

Phosphate of Lime.............

384 grains.

Phosphate of Magnesia.........

64 grains.

Phosphate of Potassa...........

32 grains.

Phosphate of Iron..............

64 grains.

Phosphoric Acid (60 per cent) . . .

816 minims.

Water (sufficient to make).......

1 pint.

In either formula, mix the Phosphates and Phosphoric Acid together in a wedge wood or porcelain mortar, add the water, and stir until dissolved. Filter, if necessary.

The sixty per cent Phosphoric Acid may be readily produced from the U. S. Acid, which is fifty per cent, by simply taking one hundred (100) parts of the former and evaporating, in a porcelain capsule, to eighty (80) parts, thereby increasing the per cent by ten (10). The same result may be attained by adding twenty (20) per cent more of the official or fifty (50) per cent acid, allowing this to replace an equal quantity of Water in the formula.

Compound Phosphate Solution

Magnesium Carbonate .........................

600 grains.

Calcium Carbonate...........

600 grains.

Potassium Bicarbonate........

600 grains.

Phosphoric Acid (U. S.)........

10 fl. ounces.

Water (sufficient to make).....

5 pints.

Mix and prepare as directed under previous formula.

One to two teaspoonfuls of this solution is considered a dose. Diluted, of course.

Fruit Acid Solution

(solution of citric acid)

Citric Acid.....................

4 ounces.

Water.........................

8 fl. ounces.

Mix and make solution, and filter, if necessary.

One (1) to two (2) fluiddrams or more may be added to a quart of syrups not already tart, if desired to be made so.

Acid Solutions are sometimes prepared from Tartaric Acid, but from its greater liability to deteriorate, it is not recommended, although cheaper than Citric Acid.

This has already been dilated on under syrups, but it would appear also necessary to note the fact here, as being under this particular head and for that reason more likely to be noted and remembered.

Other strengths of this solution are recommended and sold. You can determine the proportion of acid approximately in any Citric Acid Solution by evaporating the solution and weighing.
