Abstract:

Beta-ICl is monoclinic, P2 sub 1c with a equal to 8.883, b equal to 8.400, c equal to 7.568 angstroms, beta equal to 91.3 degrees and 8 molecules per cell. In beta-ICl, the molecules are arranged in zig-zag chains the bond lengths are I-Cl equal to 2.35 and 2.44 angstroms in the 2 independent molecules. Within chains the I...I distance is 3.06 and the I...Cl distance is 2.94 angstroms between chains the distances are much longer. These short distances indicate inter-ACTIONS BETWEEN MOLECULES IN ONE CHAIN STRONG ENOUGH TO BE CALLED WEAK BONDS. Author
