Aluminum chloride is an alcohol-soluble lewis acid.† Aluminum chloride mixed with sodium borohydride, in diglyme in a molar ratio affords a mixture having strong reducing properties.† It was reported to promote the Friedel-Crafts acylation reaction between 4-tert-butylbenzoyl chloride and mesitylene.†
Aluminum chloride was used for the following studies:
- Polymerization of benzene to afford p-polyphenyl.
- As a catalyst for the Friedel-Crafts acylation of buckymetallocenes with the acid chlorides.
- As a catalyst for the colorimetric microassay for the determination of lipid hydroperoxides.

Características e benefícios
The vapor-phase co-reductions with other metal halides by hydrogen results in finely divided intermetallics with applications as structural materials or compounds with useful thermoelectric, magnetic, and oxidation-resistance properties. Aluminum nitride can be synthesized from the elemnts with AlCl3 added to help facilitate crystallization.
