Dioxanates of Cadmium Chloride


DIOXANATES of cadmium chloride were precipitated from a solution of the anhydrous salts (certified purity) in acetal-free dioxane, prepared from Eastman Kodak technical 1,4-dioxane by the method of Eigenberger1. The crude dioxanate (that is, wet with dioxane) was placed in the bulb of the isotenoscope of Smith and Menzies2, and oil of paraffin, U.S.P., was employed as the levelling liquid. The isotenoscope was immersed in a water-bath maintained at 25.5° ± 0.1° C. The system was evacuated and the pressure values were taken continuously until the lowest value was obtained. The pressures were read on a Zimmerly gauge by means of a cathetometer.
