Iodine+Aceton+Ammonia???


Once I dissolved Iodine in acetone and then I added Ammonia to it but after few minutes it seems Iodine vanished !!! I don't know what reaction happened???

I believe you'd end up with iodoacetone.




I'm not a liar, I'm just an enthusiastic celebrant of opposite day.
I post pictures of chemistry on instagram as bismuthate. http://iconosquare.com/bismuthate
or this viewer if you don't have an instagram (it sucks though) http://web.stagram.com/n/bismuthate

I assume that the liquid became yellow and that you also had small amounts of yellow material. What you had was the haloform reaction in which iodoform is formed. Ammonia is sufficiently alkaline to get this reaction.

Search google for "haloform reaction" combined with chloroform or iodoform. I'm quite sure you will find interesting reads.

I found good reads thanks
But an Idea crossed my mind is that possible to substitute NO3 Ion with Iodine in Iodoacetone???

How?

Would this produce any nitrogen triiodide?

Only if you have an excess of I2 and NH3(aq).

Be carful as iodoacetone is a tear gas.

Iodine and NH3 give NI3 (better: NI3.nNH3, with n possibly up to 10 or so, depending on concentration of NH3), but when acetone is present as well, then the haloform reaction takes preference over the formation of NI3.nNH3.

I'd be careful mixing random things without any idea of what might happen. As a few other people have mentioned you probably produced iodoacetone (a powerful lachrymatory agent so don't breath it in) or nitrogen triiodide which is explosive and very sensitive or a mix of both. Either way they're cool products but not something to take lightly.

my purpose was to make Nitrogen triiodide but it appeared I was wrong!!!

U know when I was a Kid I used to make nitrogen triiodide I did it by adding Ammonia on a solution of water+iodine (as u know iodine is insoluble in water so we added KI which helps iodine to form a ligand i guess , it makes iodine soluble in water) so I did the same proses but a new idea crossed my mind (why don't just use acetone instead of water and eliminate use of KI???)

Please edit your posts if you can so you do not double or triple post.

Iodoacetone (vapor) is a lachrymator even at low concentrations and is toxic by inhalation.



As below, so above.

What would be the result of the following reaction?
Iodoacetone + AgNO3

I don't know how likely a reaction like that is to occur without extreme conditions. First try figuring out the formula of iodoacetone. 2-propanone is acetone's systematic name, that should help you figure out the formula of iodoacetone.
