Applications

Aluminum chloride is used to control excessive sweating. It is commonly used as a catalyst for the halogenation (especially chlorination) of aromatic groups, as well as in the Friedel Crafts reaction. It is also used in the Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley reduction. It is widely used in the manufacturing of petrochemicals such as alkylbenzene, ethylbenzene, alkyl aryl ketone, ethyl chloride. It is used for making detergents, polymerization and isomerization reactions of hydrocarbons.

Notes

Aluminum chloride is hygroscopic. It must be packed in a tightly closed container and stored in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. It is water-reactive and corrosive in nature. It reacts vigorously with bases.
