Chromium chloride (CrCl3 • 6H2O), or chromium trichloride, is used as a precursor to many inorganic chromium compounds. A dark green crystalline compound, chromium chloride hexahydrate is most often used in the electroplating industry, but has also found use in catalysts and as a precursor to wool and textile dyes.
