Auric chloride, Terchloride of gold, trichloride of gold, Auri chloridum.
It dissolves in hot hydrochloric acid, evolving hydrosulphuric acid, and producing a solution of trichloride of antimony.
The very rounded form of the curve is due to the trichloride being largely dissociated in the liquid state.
It dissociates into the trichloride and chlorine when heated.
Antimony pentachloride, SbCl5 is prepared by heating the trichloride in a current of chlorine.
Antimonyl chloride, SbOCl, is produced by the decomposition of one part of the trichloride with four parts of water.
This solution is the equivalent of one containing 6.5 grains of trichloride to the ounce of water.
The solution being evaporated, the trichloride occurs as a greenish-blue deliquescent mass, which is soluble in alcohol.
Add a solution of trichloride of gold to one of iodide of potassium.
Thrown down as a white precipitate when trichloride of antimony is poured into water.
trichloride tri·chlo·ride (trī-klôr'īd') or tri·chlo·rid (-klôr'ĭd)
A compound containing three chlorine atoms per molecule.
