Applications

Gallium(III) chloride is used as lewis acid or precursor of organogallium reagents. It is used in detection of solar neutrinos. It is used in semiconductor devices for microelectronics and optics. It acts as a catalyst for a number of transformations such as the ring opening and recyclization of epoxide or trimerization of alkynes and as diamagnetic analogue for ferric compounds.
