Iodine Monochloride 790 99 0 - India

price: contact company for price

Iodine monochloride is an interhalogen compound with the formula ICl. It

is a red-brown compound that melts near room temperature. Because of the

difference in the electronegativity of iodine and chlorine, ICl is

highly polar and behaves as a source of I+. Owing to the similarity of

the properties of the compound with bromine (red-brown liquid at room

temperature), its synthesis led early researchers to believe that the

reaction between the heaviest and lightest of a 'triad' of elements

(three elements with similar chemical properties, now found in the same

group of the modern periodic table) would produce the central element of

the triad, the so-named 'Law of Averages'.

Iodine monochloride is produced simply by combining the halogens in a 1:1 molar ratio, according to the equation

I2 + Cl2 → 2 ICl

When chlorine gas is passed through iodine crystals, one observes the brown vapor of iodine monochloride. Dark brown iodine monochloride liquid is collected. Excess chlorine converts iodine monochloride into iodine trichloride in a reversible reaction:

ICl + Cl2 is in equilibrium withICl3

ICl is a useful reagent in organic synthesis. It is used as a source of electrophilic iodine in the synthesis of certain aromatic iodides. It also cleaves C-Si bonds.

ICl will also add to the double bond in alkenes to give chloro-iodo alkanes.

RCH=CHR’ + ICl → RCH(I)-CH(Cl)R’

When such reactions are conducted in the presence of sodium azide, the iodo-azide RCH(I)-CH(N3)R’ is obtained.

This solution, which is iodine monochloride dissolved in acetic acid, is used to determine the iodine value of a substance.
