What Is the Average Cost of Aluminum Chloride? Average Aluminum Chloride Price

Aluminum chloride is the main compound of aluminum and chlorine. It is white but samples are often contaminated with iron trichloride, giving it a yellow color. It has a low melting and boiling point. It is mainly consumed in the production of aluminum metal. Anhydrous aluminum chloride is a powerful Lewis acid, capable of forming Lewis acid-base adducts with even weak Lewis bases such as benzophenone and mesitylene. Aluminum chloride reacts with calcium and magnesium hydrides in tetrahydrofuran forming tetrahydro aluminates. Anyhydrous aluminum chloride finds widespread application in the chemical industry as a catalyst for Friedal-Crafts reactions. The average cost of aluminum chloride is $1.5 per pound.
