Mimetite may occur in oxidized lead-rich hydrothermal deposits. Arsenic(V) oxide (As2 O5 ) is not very common in nature. However, the compound was often synthesized and once widely used in a variety of manufacturing processes, such as in the production of chromated copper arsenate (CCA) wood preservatives (Chapter 5). , 1999), 400. 6). 4). , 2006). That is, at ambient temperatures and pressures, these compounds are either gases or liquids. 2). 6 lists the densities, melting points, and boiling points of the more common volatile and less volatile arsenic compounds.

Nevertheless, As2+ is present in the various forms of crystalline and amorphous arsenic sulfide. As2+ is unstable in water and oxidizes to As(III) before dissolving from the compounds into aqueous solutions (Lengke and Tempel, 2005), 350. Pararealgar (As4 S4 , monoclinic, P 21 /c space group) is a polymorph of realgar. The mineral typically forms from the exposure of α-realgar to oxygen and sunlight (in particular, wavelengths of about 500–670 nm). e. 3 to restart the cycle. Alacrinite (monoclinic, P 2/c space group) is chemically similar to α-realgar (monoclinic, P 21 /n space group).

Lewisite itself is actually composed of three organoarsenicals. The major component, which is known as Lewisite I, is ClCH— —CHAsCl2 . , 2005). , 2006; Wada, Nagasawa and Hanaoka, 2006). More benignly, organoarsenicals have significant applications in organic synthesis. The key compound for most of these uses is triphenylarsine, (C6 H5 )3 As, which can be successfully utilized in place of its better-known analogue triphenylphosphine, (C6 H5 )3 P. , 2004). Both the Stille and Suzuki reactions form new carbon to carbon bonds by reacting an organohalide or organotriflate with either an organotin compound (Stille reaction) or an organoboronic acid (Suzuki reaction).
