Chromium(3+) trichloride is a chromium chloride with the chromium cation in the +3 oxidation state. It has a role as a Lewis acid and a sensitiser. Chromic chloride appears as blue or green colored crystals dissolved in water. Denser than water. Corrosive to metals.


Chromium Chloride is used in the production of alkali metal-free catalysts and in pickling. It is used for trivalent plating for surface treatment and in the dye industry.

Used in fabrication of alloys, preparation of alloy steels to enhance corrosion and heat resistance.
