Why direct iodination of methane is not carried.Then how is it carried
Asked by lovemaan5500 | 17th Dec, 2017, 06:33: AM
Iodine reacts with methane reversibly. When iodine reacts with methane, it gives methyl iodide and hydrogen iodide which is a strong reducing agent and it can convert to iodomethane back to methane.
To overcome this difficulty iodination is carried out in presence of strong oxidizing agents like HIO3 which oxidize HI formed during the reaction.
