Asked by shreesh Kulkarni | 13th Nov, 2013, 01:34: PM

Expert Answer:

  • Formyl chloride is an unstable compound and does not exist at ordinary temperature.
  • There is, however, evidence of its existence at low temperature (-800C).
  • A mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen chloride behaves as formyl chloride.
