Zinc metal powder or granules possesses a grayish shiny appearance, have no odor, and is practically insoluble in water at ambient conditions. It is brittle at ordinary temperatures and is found naturally in rocks, animals, plants, soil, and volcanic dust/gases. It produces toxic Zinc Oxide fumes when heated to very high temperatures or undergoes ignition. Its principal ore is named Sphalerite, which is a sulfide derivative of Zinc. Metallic Zinc can be produced in two ways from its ore. The first method involves the roasting of ore in the presence of air to produce Zinc Oxide, which is then heated with Coke or Coal to around 1,100 °C producing metallic Zinc. The second method involves the leaching of roasted Zinc Oxide with Sulfuric Acid, followed byelectrolysis to produce Zinc Metal. An ACS Grade reagent is a chemical that meets the purity requirements of the American Chemical Society. For dependable, consistent, and repeatable findings, ACS Grade reagents can be utilized in high-quality research labs. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley sells its high-quality Zinc Metal Granular, 20 Mesh, ACS Grade online at laballey.com.
