General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product has been enhanced for catalytic efficiency. Click here for more information.

Application

The vapor-phase co-reductions with other metal halides by hydrogen results in finely divided intermetallics with applications as structural materials or compounds with useful thermoelectric, magnetic, and oxidation-resitance properties.
Iron(III) chloride (Ferric Chloride, FeCl3) has been used in the synthesis of Au/Fe nanoparticles. It has been used as oxidative etching agent during the preparation of platinum nanostructures.
