VARIABLE COMPOSITION OF CHLORINE HYDRATES SYNTHESIZED UNDER VARIOUS CONDITIONSGyörgyi Lakatos, Pradeep K. Sharma,Vinita Sharma, Szabolcs Bálint,Raj N. Mehrotra.
The composition of chlorine hydrates synthesised by different reaction routes were determined from experimentally measured density
values without isolating the gas hydrate crystals. This method is the simplest and accurate for determining the composition of chlorine
hydrates prepared under various conditions. The occupancies of each type of the cavities in the clathrate cage have been calculated.
Key words: Chlorine hydrate, clathrate cage, occupancy, density
