Applications

Antimony(III) chloride is engaged to detect certain compounds, such as cholesterols. It is a complexing agent used in the colorimetric Carr-Price test for detecting carotenoids including vitamin A. It is employed as a mordant and a fabric flame retardant. It is used as a catalyst for chlorinationn and polymerization reactions. It is used to coat the steel to make bronze, used as a cutting material of antimony salt and as a preservative in medicine. It is used as an analytical reagent for chloral and aromatics.

Notes

Moisture sensitive and hygroscopic in nature. It is corrosive to metals and tissue. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids and strong bases. Decomposes in water.
