Experiments by the authors support the following observations. l. Reactions in liquid sulfur dioxide are usually solvolytic in the sense that the solvent participates in the reactions. 2. Liquid sulfur dioxide under atmospheric pressure does not appreciably react with chlorine save in the presence of a catalyst. 3. Thionyl chloride and sodium sulfite do not react as indicated in the following equation:. SOCl2 + Na2SO3 =NaCl+ 2 SO24. Iodine monochloride and potassium thiocyanate react to form the products indicated in the following equation: 3 KCNS + 3 ICl + 2 SO2 = 3 KCl + I2 + I(CNS)3.2SO2. The iodine-thiocyanate-sulfur dioxide substance is a new compound.
