Aluminium Chloride USP

Aluminum chloride (AlCl3) is the main compound of aluminum and chlorine. It is white, but samples are often contaminated with iron trichloride, giving it a yellow colour. The solid has a low melting and boiling point. The compound is often cited as a Lewis acid. It is an example of an inorganic compound that “cracks” at mild temperature, reversibly changing from a polymer to a monomer.


AlCl3 is probably the most commonly used Lewis acid and also one of the most powerful. It finds application in the cemical industry as a catalyst for Friedel–Crafts reactions, both acylations and alkylations. It is mainly produced and consumed in the production of aluminium metal, but large amounts are also used in other areas of chemical industry. It also finds use in polymerization and isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons.
