The affinity of 2,1,3-benzoselenadiazole, commonly called piaselenole, for chlorine and bromine molecules has been known for a long time. Raman spectroscopy provides a very interesting method for determining the molecular structure of these 1:1 adducts. The Raman spectrum shows the Cl2 and Br2 molecules in the adduct remain as a dimer molecule.
