Iron (III) chloride, also called Ferric chloride, is an industrial scale commodity chemical compound, with the formula FeCl3. Anhydrous iron (III) chloride is deliquescent. In the laboratory iron(III) chloride is commonly employed as a Lewis acid for catalyzing reactions such as chlorination of aromatic compounds and Friedel-Crafts reaction of aromatics. We offer Ferric Chloride Anhydrous and Hexahydrate.
Ferric Chloride Hexahydrate BP Grade Ph Eur
FeCl3,6H2O — 270.3 — 10025-77-1
Content: 98.0 per cent to 102.0 per cent.
Appearance: Crystalline mass or orange-yellow or brownish-yellow crystals, very hygroscopic.
Solubility: Very soluble in water and in ethanol (96 per cent), freely soluble in glycerol.
A. It gives reaction of chlorides.
B. It gives reaction of iron.
Solution S: Dissolve 10 g in distilled water and dilute to 100 ml with the same solvent.
Acidity: In a suitable polyethylene container, dissolve 3.0 g of potassium fluoride in 15 ml of water. Titrate with 0.1 M sodium hydroxide using 0.1 ml of phenolphthalein solution as indicator until a pink colour is obtained. Add 10 ml of solution S and allow to stand for 3 h. Filter and use 12.5 ml of the filtrate. Not more than 0.30 ml of 0.1 M sodium hydroxide is required to change the colour of the indicator to pink.
Free chlorine: Heat 5 ml of solution S. The vapour does not turn starch iodide paper blue.
Sulphates: Maximum 100 ppm.
Ferrous ions: Maximum 50 ppm.
Heavy metals: Maximum 50 ppm.
