Description

Application

Iron(II) chloride can be used to catalyze:
• The preparation of Grignard compounds, such as 1-naphthylmagnesium chloride.
• The selective oxidation of 2,4,6-trimethylphenol (2,4,6-TMP) to 3,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (DMHB) in the presence of acetoxime.
• Raney-type catalysts modified with FeCl2 show enhanced selective hydrogenation of an α,β-unsaturated aldehyde to an unsaturated alcohol.

Packaging
