Physical properties of benzene diazonium chloride:

  1. Colorless, crystalline solid
  2. Readily soluble in water and becomes ionized in solution. It is almost insoluble in alcohol and ether.
  3. In dry state it is highly explosive due to heat and pressure.
  4. Aqueous solution turns into brown color on exposure to air.
  5. It exists as a colorless solid that is soluble in polar solvents including water. It is the parent member of the aryldiazonium compounds, which are widely used in organic chemistry.
  6. It is readily soluble in water and is stable in solution oat low temperature. It reacts with water on warming to form phenol.
