Description

General description

Iron(III) chloride is a mild oxidizing agent. It is widely employed as a Lewis acid in organic synthesis. On crystallization with water, it forms hydrates. It can be prepared by passing chlorine over scrap iron at approximately 650°C.

Application

Iron(III) chloride may be used for the polymerization of pyrrole and for the preparation of the phenanthrene ring. It is widely employed for the following reactions:
• polymerizations
• oxidations
• oxidative couplings
• reductions
• C−C bond formation
• Ferrier rearrangement
• one-pot multicomponent condensations
• Friedel-Crafts reactions
• cyclization′s
• glycosidation
• Prins-type cyclisation

Packaging
