Abstract
Mr. Davy, having in his last communication to the Society expressed his belief that the substance called oxymuriatic acid gas has not yet been decompounded, but is simple, as far as our present knowledge extends, and having been confirmed in that opinion by subsequent experiments, endeavours, on the present occasion, to select such experiments as tend to illustrate more fully the nature, properties, and combinations of this substance with inflammable bodies, and compares its properties with those of oxygen, to which he considers it as bearing the closest analogy. When potassium is exposed to oxymuriatic gas, the intensity of their mutual attraction occasions spo...
