Properties: Long, thin blades from glacial acetic acid or from chloroform-pyridine-acetic acid, appearing brown in transmitted light and steel-blue in reflected light. Sinters at 240° but is not melted at 300°. Absorption spectrum: Fischer-Orth, loc. cit. Freely sol in dil ammonia water, also in solns of sodium hydroxide with hematin formation, i.e., the chlorine is displaced by an OH group. Practically insol in carbonate solns, dil acid solns. Sol in strong organic bases such as trimethylamine, p-toluidine, dimethylaniline. Sol in concd H2SO4 with loss of Fe. Sparingly sol in 70-80% alc. Practically insol but stable in water.
