Applications

Copper(I) chloride is precursor to many copper compounds including copper oxychloride and many organocuprate compounds of synthetic interest. It is used as a catalyst as well as a reagent in many organic reactions including Gatterman-Koch, Sandmeyer, Grignard and Gilman reactions. It catalyzes 1,4-addition of Grignard reagents to alpha,beta-unsaturated ketones. It is also used as a doping salt to enhance the cationization of polystyrene in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry. It is also an intermediate formed in the Wacker process.

Notes

Incompatible with oxidizing agents, potassium, and water. Air, light and moisture sensitive.
