Some reactions of trichloromethyl and 3, 3-dichloroallyl compounds of mercury

  • 17 Accesses

Summary

  1. 1.

    Trichloromethyl compounds of mercury react with hydrogen cyanide, potassium cyanide and potassium iodide as inorganic mercury salts. They behave as typical organomercury compounds towards alkali and diazomethane. Trichloromethyl compounds of mercury react with a Grignard reagent in two ways — as salts and as organomercury compounds.

  2. 2.

    Bromotrichloromethane reacts with sodium amalgam to give trichloromethylmercuric bromide and not bis -trichloromethylmercury.

  3. 3.

    1,1-Dichloro-3-iodo-2-methylpropene-l was converted to 1,1-dichloro-3-iodomercuri-2-methylpropene-1. Some of its chemical properties were studied.
