|Standard name||Mercurius solubilis|
|Other names||Mercurius solubilis, Hahnemanni; Mercurius oxidatulus niger; Mercurius|
|Scientific name||Dimercuros ammonium nitrate|
|Other scientific names|
|Common names||black oxide of mercury|
|Substance description||A mercurial preparation devised by Hahnemann as a substitute for the corrosive mercurial salts in use at the time, and at once adopted in all countries on account of its much milder and more efficacious antisyphilitic qualities. It was prepared by precipitating Mercury from its solution in nitric acid by means of caustic ammonia.Clarke, J.H.|
|Distinctness||DISTINCT (distinct as a substance, but materia medica records contain mixed records of effects of black oxide of mercury (proved by Hahnemann) and pure metallic mercury, so if Merc. seems indicated and one of the variants fails, the other one can be tried)|
|Classification||Chemical substance – Compound – Inorganic|
