Definition of Hydrogenium
HydrogeniumHydrogenium Hy`dro*ge"ni*um, n. [NL. See Hydrogen.] (Chem.)
Hydrogen; -- called also in view of its supposed metallic
nature. --Graham. hydrogenium Note: Although a gas, hydrogen is chemically similar to the
metals in its nature, having the properties of a weak
base. It is, in all acids, the base which is replaced
by metals and basic radicals to form salts. Like all
other gases, it is condensed by great cold and pressure
to a liquid which freezes and solidifies by its own
evaporation. It is absorbed in large quantities by
certain metals (esp. palladium), forming alloy-like
compounds; hence, in view of quasi-metallic nature, it
is sometimes called hydrogenium. It is the typical
reducing agent, as opposed to oxidizers, as oxygen,
Bicarbureted hydrogen, an old name for ethylene.
