The thermal decomposition of some tetraiodomercurates
TL;DR: In this article, the thermal decomposition of tetraiodomercurates of copper, silver, lead, mercury, thallium, and lead was studied on the thermal balance up to 1350°C.
Abstract: The thermal decomposition in air of the tetraiodomercurates of copper (I), silver (I), mercury (I), thallium (I), and lead (II) was studied on the thermal balance up to 1350°C. The thermal decomposition of the series falls into four classes: (1) for silver; decomposition to the metal; (2) for copper and lead: decomposition to the oxide; (3) for mercury: complete volatilization; and (4) for thallium: decomposition of the cationic metal to the iodide with subsequent volatilization. The thermochromic transition temperature of the thallium compound has been determined.
