Mix the sample with 3 to 4 times amount of water to form a uniform paste. Stand for clarification and the transent supernatant is alkaline for the litmus test.
Mix 1g of the sample with 20 ml of water, and add sufficient acetic acid to form solution. The calcium salt test (IT-10) is positive.

Content analysis

Accurately weigh about 1.5g of sample into a beaker and then gradually add 30ml of dilute hydrochloric acid (TS-117). After the sample is fully dissolved, transfer the mixture into a 500ml volumetric flask. Flush the beaker and transfer the lotion into the volumetric flask too. Then dilute to the mark with water and mix fully. Take 50.0ml of the above solution into an appropriate container and add 50.0ml of water. Add in turn 30ml of 0.05ml/L disodium EDTA, 15ml of sodium hydroxide solution (TS-224) and 300mg hydroxynaphthol blue indicator with a 50ml burette under stirring (preferably with a magnetic stirrer), and then continue titrating to the blue end. Per mL of 0.05 ml/L of EDTA disodium corresponds to 3.705 mg of calcium hydroxide.

Toxicity

ADI  no restricting (FAO/WHO, 2001).
LD50  7300 mg/kg (mouse, oral).
Corrosive, weaker than lime.
GRAS (FDA, §182.1205, §184.1205, 2000).
The dust or suspension droplets of calcium hydroxide have a stimulating effect on the mucous membrane, which can cause sneezing and coughing. As alkali, it can also saponify the fat, absorb water from the skin, dissolve protein, as well as stimulate and corrode the organization. Moreover, the inhalation of lime dust may cause pneumonia.
The maximum allowable concentration of calcium hydroxide is 5 mg/m3. Once Inhaling dust, people can inhale water vapor, codeine and Judah auning, or paint mustard cream at the chest; when calcium hydroxide coming into the eyes, people should rinse the eyes as soon as possible with the running water and followed by 5% ammonium chloride solution or 0.01% CaNa2-EDTA solution, and then add 0.5% tetracaine solution dropwise. While working, people should wear dustproof fiber work clothes, gloves and dust-proof glasses to protect the respiratory organs, and paint grease ointment to prevent dust inhalation.

Uses

calcium hydroxide is an inorganic base used to adjust the pH of a product, it can also serve as a topical astringent and alkali in solutions or lotions. It can burn the skin and eyes.

Uses

Calcium Hydroxide is a general food additive made by adding water to calcium oxide (lime). it has poor water solubility with a solubility of 0.185 g in 100 g of water at 0°c. the ph of a water solution at 25°c is approximately 12.4. it is used to promote dispersion of ingre- dients in sauces, creamed spinach, and a frozen pea/potato dish. it is used at 0.1% to stabilize the potassium iodide of iodized salt, and it is used as a neutralizer for soured cream prior to buttermaking. it is also termed hydrated lime, calcium hydrate, and slaked lime.

Production Methods

Calcium hydroxide is manufactured by adding water to calcium oxide, a process called slaking.

Definition

Lime water: A solution of calcium hydroxide in water. If carbon dioxide is bubbled through lime water a milky precipitate of calcium carbonate forms. Prolonged bubbling of carbon dioxide turns the solution clear again as a result of the formation of soluble calcium hydrogencarbonate (Ca(HCO3)2).

General Description

Odorless white granules. Sinks in water.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble. The amount of heat generated by hydrolysis may be large.

Reactivity Profile

The nitroparaffins, nitromethane, nitropropane, etc. form salts with inorganic bases such as Calcium hydroxide . The dry salts are explosive [Chem. Eng. news 30:2344 1952]. Bases are chemically similar to sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or sodium oxide (Na2O). They neutralize acids exothermically to form salts plus water. When soluble in water they give solutions having a pH greater than 7.0. Mixing these materials with water can generate troublesome amounts of heat as the base is dissolved or diluted. Bases react with certain metals (such as aluminum and zinc) to form oxides or hydroxides of the metal and generate gaseous hydrogen. Bases may initiate polymerization reactions in polymerizable organic compounds, especially epoxides). They may generate flammable and/or toxic gases with ammonium salts, nitrides, halogenated organics, various metals, peroxides, and hydroperoxides. Materials of this group often serve as catalysts. A strong base. Forms caustic solution in water [Merck 11th ed. 1989].

Hazard

Skin, eye, and upper respiratory tract irri- tant, avoid inhalation.

Health Hazard

Dust irritates eyes, nose and throat.

Agricultural Uses

Calcium hydroxide, [Ca(OH)2], also called slaked lime or hydrated lime, is a white solid that dissolves sparingly in water. It is manufactured by adding water to calcium oxide, a process that emits heat and is known as slaking.
Calcium hydroxide is a cheap alkali, used for neutralizing the acidity of acid soils and in the manufacture of mortar, white wash, bleaching powder and glass. It is an excellent absorbent for carbon dioxide to produce insoluble calcium carbonate and has a neutralizing value of 179%, compared to 100% of pure calcium carbonate.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Calcium hydroxide is a strong alkali and is used as a pharmaceutical pH adjuster/buffer and antacid in topical medicinal ointments, creams, lotions, and suspensions, often as an aqueous solution (lime water). It forms calcium soaps of fatty acids, which produce water-in-oil emulsions (calamine liniment), and it is also used as a topical astringent.
Calcium hydroxide is a common cosmetic ingredient in hairstraightening and hair-removal products, and in shaving preparations.
1) In dentistry, it is used as a filling agent and in dental pastes to encourage deposition of secondary dentine. Calcium hydroxide was traditionally used as an escharotic in Vienna Paste.
