Barium Chloride Anhydrous
- Brand :
CAS No.: 10361-37-2 Molecular Formula: BaCl2 UN No.: 1564 EINECS No.：233-788-1 APPEARANCE: white crystalline powder PACKAGE: 25kg net each in P.P woven bag lined with P.E bag. PROPERTY: Colorl
CAS No.: 10361-37-2
Molecular Formula: BaCl2
UN No.: 1564
APPEARANCE: white crystalline powder
PACKAGE: 25kg net each in P.P woven bag lined with P.E bag.
PROPERTY: Colorless crystals, odorless, extremely hygroscopic, easilysoluble in water. It can be dissolved in glycerin but insoluble in alcohol. Itsaccessibility makes it easily become monohydrated salt when it is exposed to theair.
USAGE: As a cheap, soluble salt of barium, barium chloride finds wideapplication in the laboratory. It is commonly used as a test for sulfate ion(see chemical properties above). In industry, barium chloride is mainly used inthe purification of brine solution in caustic chlorine plants and also in themanufacture of heat treatment salts, case hardening of steel, in the manufactureof pigments, and in the manufacture of other barium salts. BaCl2 is also used infireworks to give a bright green color. However, its toxicity limits itsapplicability. Barium Chloride is also used (with Hydrochloric acid) as a testfor sulfates. When these two chemicals are mixed with a sulfate salt, a whiteprecipitate forms, which is barium sulfate.
