It can be prepared by reacting iodine with an excess of liquid chlorine at −70 °C. In the melt it is conductive, which may indicate dissociation:
- I2Cl6 ⇌ ICl2+ + ICl4−
Iodine trichloride can be created by heating a mixture of liquid iodine and chlorine gas to 105 °C.
It is an oxidizing agent, capable of causing fire on contact with organic materials.
