CESIUM OZONIDE CsO3

Properties of cesium ozonide CsO3:

Orange-red. More resistant than KO3 and RbO3, decomposes at moderate heat. Structure has ion (Cs+)(O3(-)). Reacts vigorously with water, acids, sulfur. Very strong oxidant.

 

Obtaining cesium ozonide CsO3:

CsO2 + O3 = CsO3 + O2 (norm. temp.).

4 CsOH + 4O3 = 4 CsO3 + O2 + 2H2O (20°C).

 

Сhemical reactions with cesium ozonide CsO3:

2 CsO3 = 2 CsO2 + O2 (70-100°C).

4 CsO3 + 2H2O = 4 CsOH + 5 O2↑ (possible traces of radicals OH(0)). 

4 CsO3 + 4 HCl (diluted, cold) = 4 CsCl + 5 O2↑ +2 H2O.

4 CsO3 + 4 HCl (diluted, hot) = 2 CsCl + Cl2↑ + 2O2 + 2H2O.

4 CsO3 + H2O(moisture) + 3 CO2 = Cs2CO3 + 2 CsHCO3 + 5O2 (norm. temp.). 

6 CsO3 + 5 S = Cs2SO4 + 2 Cs2S2O7 (30-40°C).

CsO3 + 2 NH3(liquid) = NH4O3 + CsNH2 (-50°C).
