Aluminium chloride, also known as aluminium trichloride, aluminum chloride anhydrous, aluminum trichloride, Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride. They consist of aluminium and chlorine atoms in a 1:3 ratio.
of aluminium metal with chlorine at temperatures between 650 to 750 °C.
Anhydrous aluminum chloride (aluminum trichloride, AlCl3) is an odorless, white or yellow crystalline solid that reacts violently with water to liberate hydrogen chloride (HCl) gas. The samples are often contaminated with iron(III) chloride, giving a yellow color. The solid and gas by product are both highly corrosive to eyes, skin and mucous membranes.
Anhydrous Aluminum Chloride is the principal catalyst used in Friedel Craft reaction for the manufacture of Ethyl benzene, Isopropyl benzene, Hydrocarbon resins, Terpene resins, Polybutenes, Anthraquinone, Ethyl Chloride, Dodecyl benzene, Dyestuffs (Phthalo-cyanine blues and greens), Alkyl Benzene, Titanium dioxide, Metaphenoxy benzaldehyde etc.
