The Nature of Molybdic Acid in Perchlorid Acid Medium
The nature of molybdic acid in water and in acidified solutions has been studied by relatively few workers. JONES (1) proposed the existence of isopoly — cations of molybdenum to explain the solubility of molybdic acid in acid solutions. More recently, AVESTON, ANACKER, and JOHNSON (2) report ultracentrifuge studies of molybdic acid in hydrochloric acid medium. They find a degree of polymerization of about 3 in 0, 8 M HC1, but note that equilibrium is not attained. On the other hand they find no aggregation and apparent equilibrium in 6 M HC1. No quantitative results were reported of experiments in HClO4 medium.
