Expert Reviews

Dr. Bruce Perrault, Ph.D (Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), USA)

Iron III Chloride Hexahydrate is water soluble lumps. Ferric chloride, also known as Iron (III) chloride, is used in brown patinas (copper, brass, bronze) as well as treatment of sewage, water purification, as an etching agent for engraving and photography, printed circuitry, a mordant in dyeing and printing textiles, oxidizing agent, and a clinical reagent.

Dr. Myron Rubenstein, Ph.D (Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy)

The ability of hematite to combine many advantageous properties (band gap width, valence band edge position, absorption of wide wave range in visible spectra, recombination coefficient, chemical stability, environmental compatibility, abundance, low cost, etc.) which makes it a highly suitable material for the fabrication of semitransparent photoanodes for sunlight-induced direct photoelectrolysis of water in the tandem cell. Spray pyrolysis, thermal chemical vapor deposition, spin coating, electrodeposition and magnetron sputtering represent the most frequently used techniques for layer Iron(III) chloride hexahydrate deposition. A deposition technique was developed for the preparation of nanocrystalline hematite films, based on the thermal decomposition of solid iron(III) chloride hexahydrate via iron(III) oxide chloride (FeOCl).

Dr. Huojin Chan (University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, Anhui, China)

The important structural units and widely found in nature Iron III Chloride Hexahydrate. They show diverse biological and pharmacological activities ranging from antimicrobial, anti-arrhythmic, antitumor, antifungal, anti-HIV, anti-osteoporosis to anti-inflammatory. Apart from their pharmaceutical applications, coumarins have been used as additives in foods, perfumes and cosmetics as well as in the preparation of optical brighteners, laser dyes, fluorescent labels and nonlinear optical chromophores.

Dr. Ms. Yi Yen Shi (King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Bangkok, Thailand)

Iron III Chloride Hexahydrate in nano-scale have exhibited great potential for their applications as catalytic materials, wastewater treatment adsorbents, pigments, flocculants, coatings, gas sensors, ion exchangers, magnetic recording devices, magnetic data storage devices, toners and inks for xerography, magnetic resonance imaging, bioseparation and medicine. Nano sized magnetite Iron(III) chloride hexahydrate and maghemite γ-Fe2O3 exhibiting excellent magnetic properties find applications for biomedical purposes and as soft ferrites. Iron hydroxides and oxyhydroxides such as ferrihydrite, goethite, akaganeite, lepidocrocite are being evaluated for their applications in water purification for the removal of toxic ions. Hematite, α-Fe2O3 in the nano range has been used to obtain transparent paints.

Dr. Hans Roelofs Ph.D  (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)

Iron III Chloride Hexahydrate is used in sewage treatment and drinking water production. Used in anhydrous form as a drying reagent in certain reactions. Used to detect the presence of phenol compounds in organic synthesis e.g.: examining purity of synthesised Aspirin. Used in water and wastewater treatment to precipitate phosphate as iron(III) phosphate. Used in energy storage systems.
