Ferric chloride: description, properties and application

Ferric chloride, the chemical compound FeCl3, is an integral component in various fields, showing its uniqueness and effectiveness.

The range from boiling point to melting point is from 319° C to -309° C. A natural source for the production of this chemical is molysite (mineral). The simplest method for obtaining this chemical reagent is to heat the gland with chlorine to a certain temperature. As a by-product, it is obtained as a result of hot chlorination or oxidation of FeCl2 with further evaporation of Iron(III) chloride.

Applications of ferric chloride:

1. Chemical formula and physical properties:

  • Chemical Formula: FeCl3, is dark brown crystals, highly soluble in water.

2. Industrial Application:

  • Water treatment: Ferric chloride is used to effectively purify swimming pool water, providing a high degree of purity.
  • Electronics: In the electronics industry, it is used for etching printed circuit boards, ensuring the precise formation of electrical circuits.
