Aluminum Chloride (a.k.a. AlCl3) figures among the most used and powerful Lewis acids. Widely used as catalyst, this compound is of major importance in organic chemistry. It is naturally formed on burning coal dumps and around some volcanic vents. Examples of Aluminum Chloride uses include alkylation of paraffins and aromatic hydrocarbons by olefins, formation of complex ketones, aldehydes and carboxylic acid derivatives.
