Features and Benefits

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.

Caution

Caution when opening! Due to production the supernatant gas phase can contain small amounts of toxic phosgene.
