Product Description

Ferric Chloride Hexahydrate

Application Notes

Ferric Chloride is used in photoengraving, photography, the manufacture of pigments and ink, the chlorination of silver and copper ores, and as a mordant in dyeing and printing textiles. It is also utilized in the synthesis of organic compounds. FeCl3 is used in the Mayer's tannic acid/ferric chloride method for staining tissue and their observation by light microscopy. Studies of iron uptake and of apoptosis in cultured cells have utilized FeCl3 as an iron source.
