- n. A compound of sucrose (or of some related carbohydrate) with some base, after the analogy of a salt.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A general term applied, in organic chemistry, to compounds of metallic oxids with certain sugars such as glucose and saccharose. Also called saccharate, the more usual term.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The lime formed by the decomposition of the carbide is loosened from the unattacked portion and taken more or less into solution as sucrate of lime, which is a soluble salt which the glucose or sugar in the treated carbide forms with lime.
These solutions should be made with a great deal of care and prudence, as the sucrate of lime is an accelerator of very great energy.
This objection does not obtain for the first, provided, however, that ordinary lime water is not used, but a solution of succharate or sucrate of lime.
I do not give this process with sucrate of lime as perfect, but I give it as perfectable and susceptible of application.
