Ruthenium Chloride Hydrate

Ruthenium chloride hydrate is dark brown crystalline powder, which is a precious metal compound. It has corrosivity and tend to deliquesce, which have strong hygroscopicity. But it is stable at room temperature and pressure.It is soluble in water, alcohol,  acetone and ethyl acetate, which decompose in hot water. Ruthenium(III) chloride trihydrate has two variants, which are both orange crystalline powder.
