Applications
Iron(II) chloride tetrahydrate is used as a reducing agent in metallurgy, in pharmaceutical preparations, as a mordant in dyeing and in sewage treatment. Ferrous chloride has a kind of niche application. During the laboratory synthesis of iron complexes, ferrous chloride acts as a reducing flocculating agent in waste water treatment, particularly for wastes containing chromate. It is the precursor to hydrated iron(III) oxides that are magnetic pigments. Ferrous chloride is employed as a reducing agent in many organic synthesis reactions.

Solubility
Soluble in water.

Notes
Air and light-sensitive. Hygroscopic. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong base, strong acids, ethylene oxide and strong oxidizing agents.
