Calcium chloride, CaCl2, is a salt of calcium and chlorine. It behaves as a typical ionic halide, and is solid at room temperature. Common applications include brine for refrigeration plants, ice and dust control on roads, and desiccation. Because of its hygroscopic nature, anhydrous calcium chloride must be kept in tightly sealed, air-tight containers.
Magnesium chloride is used for a variety of other applications besides the production of magnesium: the manufacture of textiles, paper, fireproofing agents, cement and refrigeration brine dust and erosion control. Mixed with hydrated magnesium oxide, magnesium chloride forms a hard material called Sorel cement.
Ammonium chloride, an inorganic compound with the formula NH4Cl, is a white crystalline salt, highly soluble in water. Solutions of ammonium chloride are mildly acidic. Sal ammoniac is a name of the natural, mineralogical form of ammonium chloride. The mineral is commonly formed on burning coal dumps, due to condensation of coal-derived gases.
Ferric Chloride, also known as Iron III is a highly corrosive and toxic acid that is used for a variety of different purposes. The most common uses including etching circuit boards and detecting the presence of phenol. Ferric Chloride is also used for coloring Raku pottery. The iron has the ability to produce varying shades of oranges and pinks. Ferric Chloride is used for making fine art etchings and in printmaking. The chemical compound starts out as yellow crystals and then turns into a brown colored acid when added to water.
In industrial application, Ferric chloride is used in sewage treatment and drinking water production.
It is also used as a leaching agent in chloride hydrometallurgy, for example in the production of Si from FeSi. (Silgrain process)
Ferric chloride is used as catalyst for the reaction of ethylene with chlorine, forming ethylene dichloride, an important commodity chemical, which is mainly used for the industrial production of vinyl chloride, the monomer for making PVC
Used in Laboratory.
Used in anhydrous form as a drying reagent in certain reactions.
Used to detect the presence of phenol compounds in organic synthesis e.g.: examining purity of synthesised Aspirin.
Used in water and wastewater treatment to precipitate phosphate as iron(III) phosphate.
Necessary for the etching of photogravure plates for printing photographic and fine art images in intaglio and for etching rotogravure cylinders used in the printing industry.
Used to make printed circuit boards (PCBs).
Used to test the pitting and crevice corrosion resistance of stainless steels and other alloys.
