Applications

Iron(II) chloride is used in the synthesis of iron complexes like iron(II) hydroxide. It acts as a precursor to hydrated iron(III) oxides that are magnetic pigments. It serves as a reducing agent in organic synthesis. Also, used as a reducing flocculating agent in wastewater treatment, especially for wastes containing chromate. It is used as an intermediate, in pigments, processing aids and in solids separation agents.

Notes

Air and moisture sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, potassium, sodium and sodium oxides.
