Abstract

The metal content, dark color, and dissolved water of bromoform, diiodomethane, and acetylene tetrabromide were effectively reduced by shaking a few grams of fuller's earth with about 125 ml. of the liquid in a separatory funnel and tapping off the clear liquid. Ion exchange resins reduced the metal content but not the dark color or water. Serious contamination of mineral separates, especially clay minerals, can be avoided by this cleaning technique.
