The Bichromate of Potash, which is manufactured in large quantities from chrome-iron-ore is the preparation from which all other salts of Chromium are derived.
It is a chemical widely used in the dyeing of fabrics, staining of wood, photography, and in electric batteries. It is a powerful oxidising substance and a corrosive irritant poison.
Many of the most remarkable symptoms were obtained from workmen engaged in the preparation of the salt.

A carbon print is a photographic print produced by soaking a carbon tissue in a dilute sensitizing solution of potassium bichromate. The solution also consists of carbon, gelatin, and a colouring agent. The process was created as a result of print fading in early photographic processes, and was patented in 1864 by Joseph Wilson Swan.
