Barium Chloride Uses

In industry, Barium Chloride is mainly used in the purification of brine solution in caustic chlorine plants and also in the manufacture of heat treatment salts, case hardening of steel, in the manufacture of pigments, and in the manufacture of other barium salts. Read more here.

Barium Chloride Hazards

Barium chloride is toxic and an eye, skin and mucous mem- brane irritant. May be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Poisoning may affect the kidneys, cardiovascular and central nervous systems. Read more here

Barium Chloride Dihydrate

Barium chloride dihydrate is a hydrate that is the dihydrate form of barium chloride. It has a role as a potassium channel blocker. It is a hydrate, a barium salt and an inorganic chloride. It contains a barium chloride. Read more here.

Barium Chloride Ionic Or Covalent

The compound barium chloride is not the same thing as barium and chlorine mixed together. which forms an ionic lattice when solid. Since this lattice has overall neutral charge, its ionic charges must balance with integer coefficients. Read more here.

What Happens When You Mix Barium Chloride And Sodium Sulfate? 

What happens when you mix barium chloride and sodium sulfate? Barium sulfate is insoluble in water, so it will precipitate as a solid. Sodium chloride will remain in solution. Read more here.
