Aluminum Chloride Price Trend

Dry chlorine or hydrochloric acid gas is passed over heated aluminium powder to produce anhydrous aluminium chloride. Zhangzhou Xiangcheng San'an Chemical Co., Ltd. offered 550 RMB/MT of high-purity hydrochloric acid in the first quarter of 2022, which was momentarily steady, and the real transaction price was mostly negotiated. During the first quarter of 2022, the market for upstream liquid chlorine rose slightly and cost support was strengthened. The market for downstream ammonium chloride rose sharply, the price of polyaluminium chloride was adjusted to a low level, and downstream hydrochloric acid purchase intentions were widespread.

About Aluminum Chloride:

Aluminum chloride is an inorganic compound that is primarily used in the metallurgy industry as a component in the production of aluminum. It is also used in the smelting of aluminum. It is the most commonly used Lewis acid and is used in the chemical industry as a catalyst in the production of a wide range of organic chemicals.

Chemical Formula:

  • AlCl3


  • Trichloroaluminum
  • Aluminum trichloride

Molecular Weight:

  • 78 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Waste-water treatment
  • Inks
  • Synthetic rubber
  • Lubricants
  • Wood Preservatives

Production Processes:

  • Production of Aluminum via Exothermic Process; via Single Displacement Reaction

On a large scale, an exothermic reaction between aluminum metal and chlorine or hydrogen chloride produces aluminum chloride. The temperature is kept between 650 and 750 °C. When hydrogen chloride is used, hydrogen gas is produced as a byproduct.
