Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
558.28 (486.22anhy)
Storage & Sensitivity
Ambient temperatures.
Soluble in water.


A useful oxidant for organic synthesis. This chemical is also useful for the synthesis of quinoxaline derivatives which are useful as DNA cleaving agents, dyes, and organic semiconductors. Used to release organic ligands from metal carbonyls. Whereby the metal is oxidized, Carbon monoxide is produced, and the organic ligand is released.


Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Do not store with organic materials. Store away from reducing agent and metal powders.
