The object of this investigation was to ascertain the reason for stannous chloride producing a precipitate, when added to a solution of ammonium molybdate; from this, to get a qualitative test for tin, and if possible, a quantitative process.

This has been accomplished and many interesting facts brought to light. The nature of the above precipitate has been studied, and various methods for the preparation of metallic molybdenum have been investigated. The results of which will be discussed in this thesis and that of of Mr. F. H. Mitchell.
