Barium Chloride

Barium chloride chemical formula : BaCl2

Another name for barium chloride : Barium moriat

Barium chloride is one of the most common salts dissolved in barium water, which is produced by the reaction of hydrochloric acid and barium carbonate or barium hydroxide.

Barium chloride is a white and toxic powder that has yellow and green colors in front of the flame. This substance absorbs moisture and by absorbing water, it is first converted to barium dihydrate chloride and has limited use in laboratories and industries. As you know, barium chloride is not found in nature, it is insoluble in ethanol and ethyl acetate. It is soluble in water and methanol.

Applications of barium chloride

This chemical compound is produced in industry in a two-step process. In the first stage, carbon and barium sulfate react together at high temperatures to produce barium sulfate. In the second stage, this compound is combined with calcium chloride to produce barium chloride and calcium sulfate.

This salt is used in the laboratory to test sulfate ions in experimental samples. Barium chloride is used to produce pigments, to harden steel, to make salts by heat treatment, and to produce other barium salts.

Although this material is cheap, but due to its high toxicity, it is rarely used and its only widespread use is in the industry of producing barium salt solution.

From this combination to make fireworks that produce a bright and transparent green color. Unfortunately, as you can see in the text above, the toxicity of barium chloride limits its possible applications.

Other uses for barium chloride include pesticides, sugar refining, boiler detergents, dyeing and printing on fabrics, as well as soft drinks, sulfur, polymers and stabilizers.
