General description

Bismuth(III) chloride is a Lewis acid catalyst and a common source of Bi3+ ions used in various organic transformations and synthesis of bismuth nanomaterials.

Application

Bismuth(III) chloride can be used:
  • As a precursor to prepare polyaniline and bismuth(III) telluride nanohybrids with high thermoelectric performance.
  • As a starting material to synthesize visible light absorbing double perovskite semiconductors, such as Cs2AgBiBr6 and Cs2AgBiCl6, eco-friendly alternative to the lead halide perovskites.
  • To form a protective layer on anode materials.
It can also be used as an efficient catalyst for green synthesis of:
  • Chalcones by Claisen–Schmidt reaction under solvent-free conditions.
  • One-pot three-component synthesis of Propargylamines.
  • Coumarins via ultrasound‐assisted Pechmann condensation of phenols with β‐ketoesters.
