Information on Cuprous Iodide
Cuprous Iodide is a derivative of Iodine. Cuprous Iodide is soluble in Ammonia & Potassium Solutions. Cuprous Iodide is a off-white coloured powder with a melting point of 606oC. It should be stored in tightly closed containers in a Room Temperature.
Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Iodides
The major raw material of all the Iodides is Elemental Iodine. Iodine was first discovered in 1811 in France. Iodine is a non-metallic element of Halogen Group of products, having Melting Point 114oC. Iodine is found in Caliche, which is a sedimentary rock, hardened with the deposits of Calcium Carbonate (which is mainly found in Chile) & also in the brine extracted along with the natural gas (especially found in Japan & USA).
Cuprous Iodide is manufactured by treating Copper Sulphate with Hydriodic Acid.
