  • Details

    SiliaBond® Aluminium Chloride (Si-AlClx) is the silica supported version of the most widely used Lewis acid, aluminium chloride.1 It is an effective catalyst for Friedel-Crafts alkylations2-4 and acylations. It also catalyzes the formation of ethers. The silica supported product has several advantages over the free catalyst5,6:

    - Milder Lewis acid. AlCl3 is so reactive that it often lacks of selectivity generating unwanted by-products.
    - The steric bulk of the silica reduces over alkylation and increases shelf life.
    - Easy work up. The reagent is removed by a simple filtration, avoiding the destructive water quench, which produces large amount of hazardous waste.

    SiliaBond Aluminium Chloride’s activity can be determined by its color. The material should only be used when it’s yellow or violet. The product turns white in presence of moisture.
