Molecular complexes of I2 with different organic solvents, in frozen solution, were studied using Mössbauer effect in 129I. The results obtained for the hyperfine constants indicate that the complexes may be divided into three main groups with increasing bond strength, according to the organic solvent used: (a) π solvents, (b) alcohols and ether, and (c) amines. The same classification was also used in the analyasis of various properties of the I2 complexes. Some general conclusions on the electronic nature of the I2-complexant bond are derived and discussed.
