It has long been realised that the mercuric halides, as salts, possessed remarkable properties. They are readily soluble in non-ionising solvents, have low melting points, and their solutions even in hydroxylic solvents are but feebly ionised. These peculiarities have more recently been attributed to the extreme difficulty with which the two valence electrons are lost by a mercury atom to form an ion.
