Applications
Zirconium(IV) chloride catalyzes the trans-hydrostannylation of acetylenes with Tri-n-butyl­tin hydride. It is used as a superior catalyst for the fries rearrangement of aryl acetates, giving the least hindered ortho-acetyl phenol in high yields at ambient temperatures. In the presence of ZrCl4, chloromethyl ethers are formed under mild conditions from acid chlorides and trioxane or paraformaldehyde.

Solubility
Reacts with water.

Notes
Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Handle and store under inert gas. It is sensitive to moisture. Incompatible with bases and oxidizing agents.
