Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A name given by Baskerville to a supposed element of which the chlorid was obtained by heating in chlorin a mixture of carbon and what had generally been regarded as the oxid of thorium. A second new substance, which has been named berzelium, was at the same time separated as chlorid, so that the thorium of earlier chemistry apparently contains these two supposed elements, along with a third, for which the name thorium is retained. The atomic weight of carolinium is apparently higher than that of either of the others. The oxid is said to have a pinkish color.
