Name: Iron chloride

  •     In the metallurgy for the processing of copper and silver ores.
  •     For wastewater treatment and treatment of drinking water as a coagulant.
  •     In dyeing as a mortar.
  •     Used to etch PCBs.
  •     As a drying agent in some chemical reactions.
  •     As a catalyst in the reaction of ethene with chlorine (as an intermediate, dichloroethene is formed) in the process of obtaining vinyl chloride, a monomer for the production of PVC.
  •     As a developer for sympathetic ink for texts written with salicylic acid.


Iron (III) chloride is harmful, consumed in higher doses can lead to death. The lethal dose LD50 (oral rat) is 900 mg / kg. When consumed, it causes vomiting, it is toxic to the kidneys and liver. In contact with the skin and mucous membranes, it causes irritation, very severe irritations occur in contact with eyes. Iron (III) chloride is a highly caustic substance and should only be used with appropriate protective clothing.
