Once again, although chemically related, hydroiodic acid is not HI but made from it. Commercial "concentrated" hydroiodic acid usually contains 48% - 57% HI by weight. The solution forms an azeotrope boiling at 127 C at 57% HI, 43% water. Hydroiodidic acid is one of the strongest of all the common halide acids, despite the fact that the electronegativity of iodine is weaker than the rest of the other common halides. The high acidity is caused by the dispersal of the ionic charge over the anion. The iodide ion is much larger than the other common halides which results in the negative charge being dispersed over a large space. By contrast, a chloride ion is much smaller, meaning its negative charge is more concentrated, leading to a stronger interaction between the proton and the chloride ion. This weaker H+---I− interaction in HI facilitates dissociation of the proton from the anion .

HI(g) + H2O(l) ⇌ H3O+(aq) + I–(aq) (Ka ≈ 1010)
HBr(g) + H2O(l) ⇌ H3O+(aq) + Br–(aq) (Ka ≈ 109)
HCl(g) + H2O(l) ⇌ H3O+(aq) + Cl–(aq) (Ka ≈ 108)

Appearance Yellow color liquid (57% aqueous solution)

Reactivity It reacts with many metals to generate hydrogen and to form the metal iodides. It acts as a reducing agent on organic compounds.

Health Hazards
1) Fire and explosion: Non-explosive; Water sprinkling is advised to extinguish fire.
2) Gas generation: HI fumes
3) Others Strong mono-basic acid

First aid

1) Rinse eyes with water immediately.
2) Wash contaminated skin areas with soap and dilute aqueous sodium carbonate solution.
3) When taken orally, wash the stomach a 5% aqueous solution of calcium chloride, and administer a self-containing purgative.
4) Oxygen inhalation, and calcium-rich food have been found effective.

Handling & Storage

1) Tightly seal the container and store in a cool, dark, well ventilated place
2) Use rubber gloves, fully body protection garments and gas mask.
3) Mixing and contact hazardous materials: Alkali metals


Diluted with water, then cover spilled hydroiodic acid with sodium bicarbonate or a mixture of soda ash and slaked lime (50 : 50). Mix together, and add water if necessary to produce a slurry. Collect the slurry into a container, and wash contaminated surfaces with a large amount of water.
