Ruthenium(III) chloride hydrate is used as a catalyst in the dehydrogenation of arylmethyl alcohols to corresponding aldehydes. In addition, studies indicate that Ruthenium(III) chloride hydrate catalyzes the synthesis of 2-ethyl-3-methylquinolines from primary aromatic amines and triallylamine. This molecule is especially valuable in chemical reaction due to its stability in adjacent oxidation states. Furthermore, Ruthenium(III) chloride hydrate can act as a catalyst in acylation reactions for a variety of alcohols, phenols, and thiols at room temperature. Also Ruthenium(III) chloride is used as a catalyst in oxidation reactions containing organic reagents such as pyrenes.
