Ruthenium(III) chloride Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesDark Red Solution
  • Chemical PropertiesThe trihydrate, RuCl3·3H2O, is the usual commercial form. Aqueous solutions of the trihydrate are a straw color in dilute solution and red-brown in concentrated solution. Ruthenium (III) chloride in solution apparently forms a variety of aquo- and hydroxy complexes.
  • UsesAnalysis (testing for sulfur trioxide).
  • UsesRuthenium(III) trichloride is used for technical analysis in chemistry laboratories. It is highly toxic.
  • Production MethodsRuCl3, is made by direct chlorination of the metal at 700 °C (1,292 °F). Two allotropic forms result. The trihydrate is made by evaporating an HCl solution of ruthenium (III) hydroxide to dryness or reducing ruthenium (VIII) oxide in a HCl solution.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by intraperitoneal route. Incompatible with iron pentacarbonyl and zinc. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of RuO, and Cl-. See also RUTHENIUM COMPOUNDS.
