General description

Zinc chloride solution is a colorless liquid that contains zinc chloride dissolved in THF. Its synthesis has been reported.


Zinc chloride solution was used in the synthesis of the ferrocenylarenes.
It may be used for the in situ generation of organozincate reagents by reacting with Grignard compounds and also to catalyze chloromethylation of resins for solid phase peptide synthesis.
