Third, that iodin dissolves rather slowly in liquid petrolatum at room temperature.
This use of liquid petrolatum and of petrolatum products generally is by no means novel.
liquid petrolatum has the advantage over these of being devoid of tendency to rancidity.
This sample has the characteristics of a solution of iodin in liquid petrolatum.
It is only slightly soluble in water, alcohol, chloroform, liquid petrolatum and vegetable oils.
In short, liquid petrolatum, being a drug, its indiscriminate and excessive use should not be encouraged.
Conclusions: These experiments show: A solution of iodin in liquid petrolatum is saturated when it contains about 1.4 per cent.
