Thallium(I) hydroxide

Dangerous for the environment

Thallium(I) hydroxide, also called thallous hydroxide, TlOH, is a hydroxide of thallium, with thallium in oxidation state +1.

Thallium(I) hydroxide is obtained from the decomposition of thallium(I) ethoxide in water.

This can also be done by direct reaction of thallium with ethanol and oxygen gas.

Another method is the reaction between thallium(I) sulfate and barium hydroxide.

Thallous hydroxide is a strong base; it dissociates to the thallous ion, Tl+, except in strongly basic conditions. Tl+ resembles an alkali metal ion, such as Li+ or K+.
