1.3 Synthetic Route

The aqueous solution of NaHSO3 (0.25 g, 0.21 mmol) and NaI (0.6 g, 0.4 mmol) and NaI (0.6 g, 0.4 mmol) were added to the aqueous solution of CuSO4·5H2O (1 g, 0.4 mmol) under an argon atmosphere and vigorously stirred, resulting in a shallow pink solid. The precipitate is filtered under vacuum and washed with H2O, anhydrous EtOH, and anhydrous Et2O. The whole process is as fast as possible. It is then vacuum dried to obtain a light pink solid cuprous iodide
