The solubility relationships of the liquid tetrahalide compounds with sulphur dioxide are investigated. Tin tetrabromide, carbon tetrachloride, and titanium tetrachloride all give binary liquid systems at certain temperatures and concentrations. Tin tetrachloride normally shows the solid liquid solubility effect, but mixtures can be supercooled to give a metastable binary liquid system. Tin tetraiodide shows ordinary solid liquid solubility effect with probable compound formation. The temperature-composition diagrams are presented and discussed. Methods are developed for handling these compounds, which hydrolyze easily in ordinary air. Theoretical aspects of the problem are now under consideration.
