Abstract : The molecular weight of ClO2 in solutions of water and CCl4 corresponds to the simple formula. The author determined the solubility, the cryohydric point and the conversion point of the hydrate ClO2 + 8 H2O(+/ - 1 H2O). The author succeeded in preparing a compound of ClO2 + H2O + CCl4 as well as solutions of chlorous acid. A striking similarity of ClO2 to the halogens and/or Cl2 both in chemical and physical relation was noted. It was possible to demonstrate that a primary chlorite formation takes place in the reduction of ClO2 to Cl', i.e., the separation of this intermediate stage was successful for reactions with I', NO'2 and Zn, whereas its occurrence in the reaction with FeSO4 and AsO3H3 was highly probable. Kinetic investigation of the decomposition of ClO2 in the presence of Cl' also led to the assumption of the primary occurrence of the chlorite stage. Analytical methods for the determination of the various oxychloride derivatives, specifically of ClO2 in addition to Cl2, ClO'3 and Cl' were developed and perfected. (Author)
