Description: Summary: The controlled decomposition of the TCl₅ was carried out in an electric furnace at furnace temperatures varying from 114° to 550°C. The results indicate that chlorine evolution is noticeable when the TCl₅ temperature is about 75°C. The rate of reaction increases rapidly at a TCl₅ temperature of 175°C. Thus the possibility of TCl₅ existing at a very high temperature becomes uncertain. The TCl₄ prepared at the low temperatures (up to 300°) was obtained as a micro crystalline powder while those products allowed to heat at 400°-500° had a characteristic crystalline appearance.
