Description

General description

Mercury(II) acetate forms various addition compounds with olefins. Polarographic evaluation of these addition compounds has been proposed. It participates in the synthesis of nitrate esters, acetate esters, alcohols and ethers.

Mercury(II) acetate is a reagent mainly used in oxymercuration-demercuration reaction.

Application

Due to its strong affinity towards sulfur, it finds application as a reagent in desulfurization reactions. Mercury(II) acetate may be used in the preparation of mercury(II) acetate-Nafion modified electrode, which can be used in anodic stripping voltammetry for the analysis of lead and copper ions in waste water samples.

Mercury(II) acetate may be used in the preparation of 2-benzylidene-3(2H)-benzofuran-3-ones (aurones). It may be used in the hydrothermal synthesis of [Hg2(apca)2]n [apca = 3-aminopyrazine-2-carboxylate], a new mercury(I)-organic framework based on Hg22 + dumbbell.
