About two years ago I submitted to the Iowa Academy of Science a communication on the action of chloric acid on metals, in which it was shown that in some cases the metals dissolved without the evolution of any gas, the action apparently being the oxidation of the metal and the immediate formation of salts from the oxides and the excess of chloric acid, and the hydrochloric acid produced by the reduction of chloric acid. In the cases of some metals there occurred at the same time oxidation of the metal and the evolution of free hydrogen. In fact, in the cases of the alkali metals and magnesium the latter action preponderated.
