When Iodine dissolves in some organic solvents, it forms what is known as a charge transfer complex. For this to occur, the solvent should have a donor atom like N, O or S. Consider the reaction of I2 with either diethyl ether or diethyl sulfide (CH3CH2SCH2CH3). Which reaction would you expect to be more favorable? Why? The E and C values for I2 are both 1.00. For diethyl ether the E value is 0.963 and the C value is 3.25 while the values for diethyl sulfide are 0.339 and 7.40 respectively. Do the E and C calculations confirm or deny your initial estimation? Why? Solution IODINE IS MORE SOLUBLE WHY BECAUSE BASED GIVEN VALUES OF E AND C C VALUES ARE MORE COMPARE TO BOTH VALUES .
