Part II. Rate of decomposition and spectroscopic studies

  1. 1.

    The velocity of decomposition of sulphur iodide in carbon tetrachloride solution has been studied at 0° and at 30°C. At 30°, the velocity of decomposition is about four times that at 0°C.

  2. 2.

    With sulphur iodide solutions, a complete absorption for all wavelengths below 4770 Å is noticed. Data on the instability of sulphur iodide obtained by analytical methods, are confirmed by the spectroscopic investigations.
