Iodomercurate complexes containing the cations (M) NMe 4 +, PyH +, PMe 4 +, Ph 3MeAs +, and having the empirical formulæ M 2[HgI 4], M[HgI 3], M 2[Hg 3I 8], or M[Hg 2I 5] have been prepared. The nature of their decomposition in aqueous suspension has been established. The ultraviolet spectrum of a representative of each class of the iodomercurates has been determined.
