Abstract

The mechanism of the reaction of elementary astatine with benzene, toluene and monochlorobenzene were studied by means of radiogaschromatography. The reaction proceeds in two steps with benzene and toluene. In Step 1 the chemical bond of At2 is cleaved by the disintegration of either astatine and the remained astatine reacts immediately with solvent. At Step 2 the compound produced at Step 1 is started to decompose by the decay of astatine. But this mechanism could not be applied to the astatine-monochlorobenzene system.
