The crystals of silicotetraphenylamide are perfectly colourless short prism s of considerable size. They m elt a t 136-137° to a transparent liquid, which can be heated to 210° w ithout decomposition. On cooling this liquid solidifies to a transparent glass which, like the original crystals, can be easily decomposed by water. If silicotetraphenylamide be heated under diminished pressure (about 80 mm.), it affords a distillate of aniline, and leaves a residue which seems to be the silicondoi:10.1098/rspl.1888.0073 fatcat:p36wl5qq7jbnhfpytwk2jhfbmu
