Cupreus iodide is a white crystal or grayish white powder that easily decomposes into a brownish yellow color when exposed to light. Insoluble in water and ethanol. Soluble in 75% sulfuric acid and hydrochloric acid, also soluble in ammonia and potassium iodide. Reaction with sodium hydroxide to form cuprous oxide. Used as organic reaction catalyst, anode ray tube cover, animal feed additive, etc.
It can be used as an organic synthesis catalyst, resin modifier, artificial rainfall agent, and a source of iodine in iodized salts. In the presence of 1,2 – or 1,3-diamine ligands, cuprous iodide can catalyze the conversion of brominated aromatic hydrocarbons, brominated heterocyclic compounds, and vinyl bromide to corresponding iodides. The reaction is generally carried out in a dioxane solvent using sodium iodide as the iodization reagent.
Store in a cool, ventilated, rain and sun proof place, away from open flames, heat sources, and high temperatures.
