The following (viz., the Chloride, the Tersulphate, the Nitrate, the Sub-sulphate, the Citrate, the Acetate, the Hydrate the Ammonium Sulphate, the Hypophosphite and the Valerianate are Ferric Salts: they are compounds of the higher Oxide, Fe2O3. Most are official in the form of liquors.
Ferri Chloridum. Ferric Chloride. Fe2Cl6+12H2O=539.5.
Iron Wire, 15; Hydrochloric Acid, and distilled water to 60.
By solution in water with heat, filtration, addition of Nitric Acid, and crystallization.
