Hydrogen Iodide

Hydrogen iodide (HI) is the inorganic compound with the formula HI. Aqueous solutions of HI are known as hydroiodic acid. The gaseous diatomic molecule is colourless. Industrially, HI is mainly used in the production of acetic acid but the acid is frequently used in the laboratory for organic and inorganic synthesis as one of the primary sources of iodine and as a reducing agent.

Famous quotes containing the word hydrogen:

    The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced—by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)
