Arsenic pentachloride is a chemical compound of arsenic and chlorine . This compound was first prepared in 1976 through the UV irradiation of arsenic trichloride, AsCl3, in liquid chlorine at -105°C. AsCl5 decomposes at around -50°C. The structure of the solid was finally determined in 2001. AsCl5 is similar to phosphorus pentachloride,PCl5 in having a trigonal bipyramidal structure where the equatorial bonds are shorter than the axial bonds (As-Cleq = 210.6pm, 211.9 pm; As-Clax= 220.7pm).
