RUBIDIUM HYDRIDE RbH

Properties Rubidium hydride RbH:

White. Decomposes when heated, pressurized H2 melts without decomposition. A strong reducing agent, reacts with water, acids, ammonia, oxygen, chlorine.

 

Obtaining rubidium hydride RbH:

2 Rb + H2 = 2 RbH (300—350° C, pressure).

 

Сhemical reactions with rubidium hydride RbH:

2 RbH = 2 Rb + H2 (t>200° C).

RbH + H2O = RbOH + H2↑.

RbH + HCl (diluted) = RbCl + H2↑.

2 RbH + O2 = 2 RbOH (t>200° C).

RbH + Cl2 = RbCl + HCl (400° C),

2 RbH + 2 S = Rb2S + H2S (300—350° C).

RbH + NH3 (gas) = RbNH2 + H2 (300° C).
