Reduction of Iodine by Phosphorus(I): Integration of the Rate Equation
Kustin, Kenneth; Ross, Edward W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v82 n9 p1413-1417 Sep 2005
A. D. Mitchell's work on the phosphorus(I) reduction of the halogens and of mercury(II) and copper(II) chlorides is examined. A review of some salient characteristics of the Mitchell mechanism is presented, together with a discussion on how a student might benefit from a case study of the phosphorus(I) reduction of iodine or the similarly behaving reductions of the halogens bromine and chlorine.
