Abstract

Hydrogen chloride can exist in various forms. Indiscriminative uses of the abbreviation "HCl" for its different forms has led to considerable confusion in the literature. The discovery of hidden solid forms of widely studied molecules by using different forms of hydrogen chloride highlights the need of clarifying the terminology surrounding hydrogen chloride in chemical research (see figure).
