 for Muriate
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Muriate \Mu"ri*ate\, n. [See Muriatic.] (Chem.)
     A salt of muriatic hydrochloric acid; a chloride; as, muriate
     of ammonia.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: This term, as also the word muriatic, was formerly
           applied to the chlorides before their true composition
           was understood, and while they were erroneously
           supposed to be compounds of an acid with an oxide.
           Muriate and muriatic are still occasionally used as
           commercial terms, but are obsolete in scientific
           language.
           [1913 Webster]
