Abstract : A high pressure build-up occurred when stannic in HCl solutions were heated with formaldehyde at 200C. A mass-spectrographic analysis of this gas was performed. The principal products were CO2 and CH4. No H was found in the gas, although appreciable amounts of CO were found. Further titrations have not given any evidence for appreciable reduction of stannic to stannous Sn. (Author)
