Solubilities and the solvolytic behaviour of various inorganic compounds, Lewis acids and bases in fused monobromoacetic acid at 60 ± 0.5°C are discussed. Ionic compounds are fairly soluble, iodides and thiocyanates being comparatively more soluble than chlorides and bromides. Tetraalkyl ammonium halides are highly soluble in this solvent. Conductometric and spectroscopic studies of various Lewis acids and bases in fused monobromoacetic acid indicate their solvolytic behaviour and their subsequent ionization. The solvolyses products BBr3·CH2BrCOOH and SbCl5·CH2BrCOOH have been observed to be the strongest Bronsted acids. Auto-ionization of this solvent has been supported by acid/base titrations.
