Chromium chloride can is either CrCl3 or CrCl6. A salt is usually uncharged since the cation (here Cr3+ or Cr6+) and the anion (Cl-) combine to neutralise the charges and form a salt. Some salts can have some covalent characteristics though, but in this case both compounds above are neutral.

Chromium has four oxidation states: 2, 3, 4, and 6. Chlorine has one, and it's -1. There will be a chloride for each oxidation state of chromium. Here they are: CrCl2 Chromium (II) chloride CrCl3 Chromium (III) chloride CrCl4 Chromium (IV) chloride CrCl6 Chromium (VI) chloride

Chromium chloride has ionic bonds.

Chromium (II) chloride = CrCl2Chromium (III) chloride = CrCl3 Chromium (IV) chloride = CrCl4

CrCl3: A chloride ion has only a single negative charge; therefore, three of them are required to have the same magnitude of electric charge as a chromium (III) ion.

Another chemical name is chromium trichloride or chromic chloride. Chromium(III) chloride is a chemical name as well.

The formula of chromium chloride is CrCl3 and the formula for silver chloride is AgCl. The relevant formula unit masses are 158.36 for chromium (III) chloride and 143.32 for silver chloride. The gram atomic masses of chlorine, chromium, and silver are 35.453, 51.996, and 107.866 respectively. Therefore, the mass fraction of chloride in chromium (III) chloride is [3(35.453)/158.36] or 0.671628 and the mass fraction of chloride in silver chloride is 35.453/143.32 or 0.24737. Therefore, to form 75.0 g of silver chloride, (0.24737)(75.0) or 18.55 g of chloride is needed, and this amount of chloride is contained in 18.55/0.6716 or 27.6 g of chromium (III) chloride, to the justified number of significant digits.

Chromium (II) Chloride

charge on chromium in the salt CrF3 is positive 3 (+3)

Chromium (III) Chloride

Chromium (ll) Chloride.

Chromium (lll) Chloride.

Ionic, because chromium is a metal and chlorine is a non-metal.

there is no element with the symbol R, so perhaps it is meant to read CrCl6 which is Chromium Chloride. Hope this helps! for more info on Chromium Chloride visit

its chromium(III) chloride

It should be Chromium (II) Chloride :)

Assuming the 3 oxidation state of chromium.CrCl3====

It has no specific charge because Chromium has no specific charge

CrPbecause Cr (chromium) has a 3+ chargeand P (phosphorus) has a 3- charge

CrCO3 because carbonate has a 2- charge and here chromium has a 2+ charge

It's definitely CHROMIUM (III) CHLORIDE, because I think it is a composed of chromium in its +3 chemical compound oxidation state and chloride ions.

I think its hydroclauric acid or however you spell it.. Think..

This compound is Chromium(II) Chloride.

CrCl3Chromium chloride=============
