Rhodium(III) chloride hydrate is used as a catalyst to prepare acetic acid. It is also used as a catalyst for reduction, oxidation of alkenes, hydration of acetylene and isomerization of alkenes. It is involved in the hydrosilylation of alfa,beta-unsaturated esters to form dimethylketene trimethylsilyl acetals.
