Abstract

On the basis of results of freezing point lowering experiments, it was reported by Simons and Powell that an equilibrium existed between VCl_4, and V_2Cl_8 in carbon tetrachloride solution. Since vanadium tetrachloride is an odd molecule, it was implied that dimerization could take place, as in nitrogen dioxide, such that the odd electrons become paired. In the present paper are reported the results of a study on the system by means of magnetic susceptibility measurements, freezing point diagram determination, and spectral absorption of the solution, as a function of concentration of vanadium tetrachloride in carbon tetrachloride.
