Standard abbr. Merc.
Other abbr.
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
Provings mixed with Mercurius vivus
