AbstractAntimony was refined on a large laboratory scale by distillation, electrodeposition, and a combination of these two methods. The degree of refinement varied with the types and amounts of impurities present in the crude material, and the refining methods used. The best grade of material produced contained 99. 894 per cent antimony, which was purer than the refined products of ten large producers, as reported in the literature. In addition, a considerable amount of new information regarding the metallurgy of antimony was obtained during these experiments.
