Applications

Isomerization and cracking catalyst, mordant in dyeing and printing fabrics, in electroplating baths for plating Cu on Al, in photography as a fixer, as a pigment for glass and ceramic.Copper(II) chloride is used as a co-catalyst with palladium(II) chloride used in the Wacker process to prepare ethanol from ethane. It acts as an effective catalyst for the tetrahydropyranylation of alcohols. It is involved in the production of vinyl chloride and dichloroethane as well as in the chlorination of aromatic hydrocarbons. It acts as deodorizing and desulfurizing agent in the petroleum industry, a mordant in textiles industry and in electrotyping baths for plating copper.

Notes

>300° partial decomposition to CuCl and Cl{2}. Hygroscopic. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible withstrong bases and alkali metals.
