Tungsten(VI) Oxytetrachloride Chemical Formula

Tungsten(VI) Oxytetrachloride, also called as Tungsten(IV) chloride oxide, is an inorganic chemical compound with the molecular formula WOCl4. It is an orange or red-coloured crystal, and is soluble in benzene and CS2. It reacts with alcohol and water and forms adducts with Lewis bases. Tungsten(VI) Oxytetrachloride is Lewis acidic. WOCl4 is prepared from tungsten trioxide, which is represented as below:

WO3 + 2 SOCl2 → WOCl4 + 2 SO2
WCl6 + (Me3Si)2O → WOCl4 + 2 Me3SiCl
