Is it an inner and outer coating material on capacitors such as those found inside televisions?

Right, it's not a capacitor. It's a material used as a coating in a capacitor, specifically a "colloidal dispersion" that forms a thin film on surfaces such as glass. A graphite "paint" of sorts. The inner and outer layers in a capacitor can act as the plates.

Well, one function is placing it on cathode ray tubes in televisions. I guess at this point, the easiest way to answer the question is to give you one of many links...

Ferric chloride indeed - as if that'd fool anyone who knows chemistry Razz . It's usually used in cleaning water, eg sewage or tap water Wink .

Oh really?

Wikipedia wrote:

This corrosive liquid is used in treating sewage and drinking water


I never said it was added to it - you misread "cleaning" for "adding" methinks Razz .

As for what it is, well aside from the corrosive liquid bit above, it's a "Lewis acid", whilst its chemical forumula is FeCl3 (and that's without Wikipedia Wink ).

EDIT: Also see THIS Wink ...
