Yttrium chloride, YCl3

For the preparation and properties of the anhydrous salt. It is a hygroscopic, colourless, crystalline solid, perceptibly volatile at a bright red heat.

The hexahydrate, YCl3.6H2O, crystallises in colourless, monoclinic prisms and melts at 156° to 160°. The monohydrate, YCl3.H2O, is also known.

Yttrium aurichloride, YCl3.2AuCl3.16H2O (Cleve), and yttrium mercuric chloride, YClS.3HgCl2.9H2O, are known.
