|Titanium(III) bromide |
Except where otherwise noted, data are given for materials in their standard state (at 25 °C [77 °F], 100 kPa).
Titanium(III) iodide is an inorganic compound with the formula TiI3. It is a dark violet solid that is insoluble in solvents, except upon decomposition.
In terms of its structure, the compound exists as a polymer of face-sharing octahedra. Above 323 K, the Ti---Ti spacing are equal, but below that temperature, the material undergoes a phase transition. In the low temperature phase, the Ti---Ti contacts are alternating short and long. The low temperature structure is similar to that of molybdenum tribromide.
