Definitions of ANTIMONIAL POWDER
Sort: Oldest first
A peroxide of antimony combined with phosphate of lime. (Take of common sulphuret of antimony; hartshorn shavings. Roast in an iron pot, until they form a gray powder. Put this into a long pot, with a small hole in the cover. Keep it in a red heat for two hours, and grind to a fine powder.) This preparation has long been esteemed as a febrifuge: but it is extremely uncertain in its action. The ordinary dose is 6 or 8 grains.
