Ferric iodide physical properties

Density: 2.873g/cm3

Properties: gray black solid.

Solubility: Soluble in cold water and ethanol.

Iron ii iodine chemical properties

Reducibility: Oxidized by oxygen when heated in air. 4FeI2+3O2====2Fe2O3+4I2(Condition: heated)

Iron ii iodide properties and stability

Will not disintegrate if used and stored according to specifications.

Avoid contact with alkali, alkali metal, acid, moisture/moisture. It becomes grayish white in the air and deliquescent. It is easily soluble in water and has a light green color, but it turns black when the aqueous solution is heated to more than 50 ° C. The dark green tetra hydrate can be precipitated by evaporation of the aqueous solution.
