Gold halide

Gold halides are compounds of gold with the halogens.


AuCl, AuBr, and AuI are all crystalline solids with a structure containing alternating linear chains: ..-X-Au-X-Au-X-Au-X-... The X-Au-X angle is 180°.[citation needed]


The triiodide does not exist.[citation needed] AuCl3 readily forms out of the elements at temperatures below 254oC. It is a volatile red solid. The volatile species is the dimer Au2Cl6.[citation needed]
