Abstract

It is established that the absorbance of the SOCl2/LiAlCl4 electrolyte solutions at 2800 cm−1 is due the HCl, generated in the solution as a result of the hydrolysis reaction of SOCl2. A slow ‘self-desiccation’ reaction of the hydrated AlOHCl2 is also postulated to occur in these solutions.
