    Hello, Id just like to ask that when iron is oxidised by chlorine in the following reaction, does a solid or aqeous product form?

    2Fe(s) + Cl2(g) ------> 2FeCl3(?)

    Also, what colour would that solid/aqueous product be?

    Thanks

    What you form is Iron (III) chloride, in it's purest form it is a yellow solid.
