Expert Reviews

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

Lanthanum III Chloride Heptahydrate (LaCl3.7H2O) is an excellent water soluble crystalline Lanthanum source for uses compatible with chlorides. Hydrate or anhydrous forms may be purchased. Chloride compounds can conduct electricity when fused or dissolved in water.

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

Lanthanum chloride is the inorganic compound with the formula LaCl3. It is a common salt of lanthanum which is mainly used in research. It is a white solid wet crystalline material that is highly soluble in water and alcohols.

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

One application of lanthanum chloride is the removal of phosphate from solutions via precipitation, e.g. in swimming pools to prevent algae growth and other wastewater treatments. It has also shown use as a filter aid and an effective flocculent. Lanthanum chloride is also used in biochemical research to block the activity of divalent cation channels, mainly calcium channels. Doped with cerium, it is used as a scintillator material.

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

In organic synthesis, lanthanum chloride functions as a mild Lewis acid for converting aldehydes to acetals. The compound has been identified as a catalyst for the high pressure oxidative chlorination of methane to chloromethane with hydrochloric acid and oxygen.

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

Chloride materials can be decomposed by electrolysis to chlorine gas and the metal. They are formed through various chlorination processes whereby at least one chlorine anion (Cl-) is covalently bonded to the relevant metal or cation. Ultra high purity and proprietary formulations can be prepared. The chloride ion controls fluid equilibrium and pH levels in metabolic systems. They can form either inorganic or organic compounds.
