I know that it doesn't dissolve in any concentration of ammonia (conc / dilute) but why is this the case?
Is this even necessary for the spec?

i.e. dissolution would not increase the entropy of the universe ...
Possibly because of the low hydration enthalpy of the iodide ion (due to its large size) ...Last edited by charco; 01-06-2016 at 17:46.
