Chromyl chloride, a gaseous metal compound


Recommended Posts

In this experiment, I made some chromyl chloride, a very volatile compound of chromium, which forms an orange/brown gas. It is really weird, thinking of this vapor being a metal-compound!


This stuff has some very interesting properties. Have a look at the page, I made about this compound:




The chemicals, needed for this experiment, are quite common, and I expect that many people, who read this and who do some serious home chemistry, can easily repeat this experiment.


Be careful though, chromyl chloride is a carcinogen. Avoid breathing any of the vapor.
