Zinc Chloride

Zinc Chloride is white powder crystal of 136.29 molecular weight 2.91g/cm3 density, 290 °C melting point and 732 °C boiling. It is tasteless, deliquescent, and dissolves in water. Used: It is mainly used in the industries of organic synthesis, such as dehydrating agent, condensation agent, wood antiseptic, fabric starching agent. Weighting agent, battery, electroplates, papermaking, medicine, active carbon and so on.

General
Zinc chloride is the name of chemical compound with the formula ZnCl2 and its hydrates.
Zinc chlorides, of which nine crystalline forms are known, are colorless or white and highly soluble in water. ZnCl2 itself is hygroscopic and even deliquescent.
Samples of ZnCl2 should be protected from sources of moisture, including the water vapor present in ambient air.
Process
Characterization of the Ammonium Zinc Chloride Obtained from Zinc Chloride Residual Solution.
Estimation of zinc chloride contamination by histopathological analysis of the respiratory organs of the air breathing 'murrel'.
Optical absorption spectra and related parameters of ammonium zinc chloride crystal in the antiferroelectric and commensurate phases.
Preservation of Timber with zinc chloride by the steeping process.
Application
Zinc chloride finds wide application in textile processing, metallurgical fluxes, and chemical synthesis.
ZnCl2 is used as a fireproofing agent and in fabric "refresheners" such as Febreze.
Zinc chloride has the ability to attack metal oxides to give derivatives of the formula MZnOCl2. This is relevant to the utility of ZnCl2 as a flux for soldering.
Zinc chloride finds wide use, principally as a moderate-strength for Lewis acid.
Zinc chloride is one of the most effective of wood preservative.
