Nitric acid was first developed by Arabian chemists in the 11th century By the 18 th century it was in use medicinally for burning off warts, and for treating skin complaints, syphilis, chest infections, and fevers. It has many modern commercial applications, being used in the manufacture of fertilizers, varnishes, nylon, lacquers, chemicals, and explosives. Nitric ac. was proved by Hahnemann and published in his Chronic Diseases (1821-34). He used it chiefly for painful skin conditions, and for miasms such as Sycosis (see page 20).
