The acid liberated the whole of the tungstic acid from the tungstate, and practically all tungstate was taken down by the protein precipitate leaving sufficient excess acid to give a filtrate with a pH between about 3.
The resulting tungstic acid was reacted with ammonia to produce ammonium para-tungstate.
Another Swedish chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele (1742--1786), confirmed Cronstedt's suspicion in 1781 by isolating the oxide form of the mysterious metal and preparing from it a compound that he named tungstic acid.
Two years later, Spanish chemist Fausto de Elhuyar (1755--1833) prepared the same tungstic acid from another heavy mineral.
