About Stannous Chloride Crystals, Lab Grade

Stannous Chloride, also known as Dichlorotin, Tin(II) Chloride, and Tin Dichloride, has the chemical formula SnCl2. Its anhydrous form appears as colorless to white hygroscopic crystalline mass or flaky solid with a fatty appearance and no odor. It is sparingly soluble in excess Water and freely soluble in Alcohol at ambient conditions. Normally, its anhydrous salt is produced by direct reaction of chlorine and molten Tin or by heating Tin in Hydrogen Chloride gas.

Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are the two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptable purity. Due to its high purity, this Lab Alley product is highly recommended for labs and commercial applications.
