Our aim is to provide quality assured products to our valuable clients by offering Methyl Iodide. It is a clear liquid with molecular formula CH3I. It can be employed in the preparation of stable neutral solutions of hypoiodous acid and various methyl esters. This is a colorless liquid, can be prepared by reacting dimethyl sulfate with concentrated KI. It reacts with tris(triphenylphosphine)chlororhodium(I) to afford the octahedral complex of rhodium(III). Methyl Iodide is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of some pharmaceuticals and pesticides. It is used in methylation processes, and in the field of microscopy.
