Common name: Corrosive Sublimate
The chemical formula for mercury chloride is HgCI2
Some physical properties of Mercury Chloride is that it is white, it is a powder, and it is odorless. Some chemical properties include that Its solubility increases from 6% at 20 °C (68 °F) to 36% in 100 °C (212 °F), also when in the presence of chloride irons it dissolves to give the tetrahedral coordination complex, finally its melting point is 277 degrees Celsius.
In its shiny liquid form it is extremely poisonous to humans. The symbol Hg that mercury is known by comes from its Greek name, hydrargyrum, which means "liquid silver". The element can be known as quicksilver because of how fast it moves in its liquid form.
