Aluminium chloride, AlCl3, is well-known as a catalyst for organic reactions. This compound is soluble in water, hydrogen chloride, ethanol, chloroform, CCl4 and is slightly soluble in benzene. It is a silver-white powder, but sometimes turns to yellow if they are contaminated by ferric chloride. It tends to absorb water easily (hygroscopic) to form monohydrate or hexahydrate. Aluminium chloride is a corrosive substance and it is also very toxic. It can cause high damage to the eyes, skin, and respiratory systems if inhaled or upon contact.
Aluminium chloride is used as a coagulant for many industrial and sanitary wastewater treatment applications, because of its high efficiency, effectiveness in clarification, and utility as a sludge dewatering agent. The chemical leaves no residual colour and offers very good turbidity removal.
