Iron(III) chloride is a mild oxidizing agent and participates in various carbon-carbon-bond forming reactions. On crystallization with water, it forms hydrates. It can be prepared by reacting chlorine with the scrap iron at approximately 650°C.
Iron(III) chloride (Ferric Chloride, FeCl3) has been used as a surface modulator for the characterization of wines by fingerprinting technology. It has been used for the quantitative estimation of sulfide in various biological samples.
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.
