Abstract:1 5 7 1their power of dissolving metals. Lithium is found to be soluble in ethylamine and potassium in ethylenediamine. I n the higher members of the primary amines as well as in the secondary and tertiary amines, the alkali metals are insoluble. T h e behavior of mixed solvents has also been studied. As a rule, the alkali metals are soluble in any inactive solvent containing considerable ammonia, and the solubility is the lower the smaller the amount of ammonia present. If sufficient metal be added to a solve… Show more
