7446-70-0 - Application:

Aluminum Chloride Anhydrous (AlCl3) (CAS: 7446-70-0) is important industrial chemical. Aluminum Chloride Anhydrous is used as the catalyst in variety of Friedel-Crafts type of reactions. Aluminum Chloride reacts vigorously with water and fumes in air.
Aluminum Chloride has extensive commercial applications. Aluminum chloride is used as a catalyst in many organic reactions. Major use involves its catalytic applications in many organic reactions, including Friedel-Crafts alkylation, polymerization, isomerization, hydrocracking, oxidation, decarboxylation, and dehydrogenation. It is also used in the production of rare earth chlorides, electroplating of aluminum and in many metal finishing and metallurgical operations.
Aluminum Chloride is used as a catalyst for Friedel-Crafts acylation and alkylation of aromatic compounds. It is one of the most commonly employed Lewis acids for a wide variety of organic transformations. It catalyzes the ene reaction, polymerization and isomerization reactions.
Aluminum Chloride is an organic synthesis catalyst. Used in synthetic resin, synthetic rubber, petroleum cracking, synthetic dyes, synthetic detergents, pharmaceuticals, spices, pesticides, etc. It is also used for the preparation of organic compounds of aluminum, the refining of metals and the treatment of lubricating oils.

7446-70-0 - Hazard:

Powerful irritant to tissue; moderately toxic by ingestion. Reacts violently with water, evolving hydrogen chloride gas. Contact with the skin or eyes in the presence of moisture causes thermal and acid burns. This chemical is on the Special Health Hazard Substance List. 

7446-70-0 - Flammability and Explosibility:

Aluminum Chloride is not flammable but reacts violently with water, so fires involving this substance should be extinguished with carbon dioxide or dry chemicals. Toxic fumes (HCl and reaction products) can be released during fires.  

7446-70-0 - Storage:

Work with this substance should be conducted in a fume hood, and impermeable gloves should be worn at all times when handling AlCl3. Aluminum chloride should be stored in sealed containers under an inert atmosphere in a cool, dry place. Care should be taken in opening containers of this compound because of the possibility of the buildup of HCl vapor from hydrolysis with traces of moisture.  

7446-70-0 - Incompatibilities:

A strong reducing agent. Contact with air or water forms hydrochloric acid and hydrogen chloride gas. Reaction with water may be violent. Water, alcohol, and alkenes can cause polymerization. Incompatible with nitrobenzene, organic material, and bases. Attacks metal in presence of moisture, forming flammable hydrogen gas.
