About

Aluminium chloride is also sometimes referred to as aluminium trichloride or aluminium (III) chloride. The compound is formed when aluminium and chlorine are reacted together.Aluminium chloride has a very low melting and boiling point in a molten state is a poor conductor of electricity.Aluminium chloride is white, but often it is contaminated with iron trichloride, which makes it yellow. Aluminium Chloride is a non-explosive, non-flammable but corrosive solid.
