For a lab, I had to react toulene with 1% I2 in dichloromethane. Would HI form as a result of this?

Logically, I think there would be no reaction because toulene looks too stable. But a colour change occured. Why would this happen?

  • Chemistry -

    Sorry, I meant hexane and not toulene.

    For hexane, I would expect a reaction to occur, but the colour stayed dark purplish. Would HI form here?

  • Chemistry -

    If the color stayed dark purple, that would tell me no reaction occurred, or at least would give me a strong hint in that direction.
