Answer: Manganese chloride is used for the dyeing textiles, as a disinfectant, and as a component in dry cell batteries. It's also used as a catalyst for some chlorination reactions. Additionally, manganese chloride is used to produce various manganese salts including methylcychlopentadienylmanganese tricarbonyl which is in turn used as a colorant for bricks.
