Examples from the Web for monohydrate
At temperatures above 0, barium acetate can form two stable hydrates, a trihydrate and a monohydrate.
The curve of the latter hydrate extends to 175.5 (L), and is then succeeded by the curve for the monohydrate.
Before the melting point of the monohydrate is reached, two liquid phases are formed, as in the case of sulphur dioxide and water.
This is, therefore, the transition temperature for the trihydrate and monohydrate.
- a hydrate, such as ferrous sulphate monohydrate, FeSO 4 .H 2 O, containing one molecule of water per molecule of the compound
