The nitrate and hydrochloride are at present much used in pharmacy.
The hydrochloride crystallises in white plates, and has a melting-point of 192°.
The hydrochloride is soluble in alcohol and in water, melting-point about 205°.
hydrochloride of nicotine is more easily volatilised than the pure base.
For the latter chloroxyl, the hydrochloride of phenylcinchoninic acid, is recommended.
It gives a precipitate with potassium iodide if a solution of the hydrochloride be used.
The hydrochloride, the hydrobromide, the hydriodide, and the nitrate have been obtained in a crystalline state.
It forms a very insoluble sulphate, and a sparingly soluble nitrate and hydrochloride.
Its hydrochloride and sulphate are both more soluble than either of the corresponding salts of jervine or pseudo-jervine.
The salts are soluble in water; the hydrochloride may be obtained by passing gaseous HCl into anhydrous ether.
