  • adjective:
    • regarding, or designating, an acid (previously called antimonic acid) analogous to metaphosphoric acid, and received as a white amorphous insoluble material, (HSbO3).
    • previously, designating an acid, which will be today precisely known as pyroantimonic acid, and analogous to pyrophosphoric acid.
  • others:
    • Noting an acid, HSbO3, acquired by heating ortho-antimonic acid to 175° C. The metantimonic acid of Frémy (H4Sb2O7) happens to be known as pyro-antimonic acid, therefore preserving analogy using different phosphoric acids.
