Description

General description

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.†

Application

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.

Packaging

5, 100, 500 g in glass bottle

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.
