Mercuric Chloride

Mercuric chloride is a laboratory reagent and a molecular compound. It is no longer used for medicinal purposes because it is highly toxic and superior treatments have become available. The main application of mercuric chloride is as a catalyst for the conversion of acetylene to vinyl chloride, the precursor to polyvinylchloride. It was used as a photographic intensifier to produce positive pictures in the collodion process.
