Study of ultraviolet photolysis of bis(trichloromethyl)Mercury in the gas phase and in solution

  • 19 Accesses

Conclusions

The UV photolysis of Hg(CCl3)2 in the gas phase at 80°, and in dimethoxyethane solutions at 18°, leads to the respective formation of C2Cl6 and HCCl3 as the main products, which testifies to the predominant free-radical decomposition of the starting molecules involving CCl3.
