Calcium chloride dihydrate Usage And Synthesis

Description

Calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl2﹒2H2O) is the hydrate form of calcium chloride. Calcium chloride is an inorganic compound consisting of calcium and chloride. It has various kinds of applications. For example, it can be used as a desiccant due to its high hygroscopicity; used for the deicing and dust control; for road surfacing; as brine for refrigeration plants, ice and cement; increasing the water hardness in the swimming pools; as a food additives; increasing the cell membrane permeability to facilitate the genetic transformation of cells; for the treatment of hypocalcemia in which the body requires a prompt increase in blood plasma calcium levels, For its production, it can be either produced directly from limestone or produced by the Solvary process as the by-product. In addition, it can also be obtained by purification from brine.

Chemical Properties

colourless crystals or white crystalline powder

Chemical Properties

Calcium chloride is a colorless to off-white crystalline solid which is deliquescent (absorb water). When heated, crystals lose water @ 100C.

Uses

cosmetic ingredient

Uses

Preparation of calcium standard solutions; electrolyte.

Definition

ChEBI: A hydrate that is the dihydrate form of calcium chloride.

brand name

Cal Plus (Mallinckrodt).

Potential Exposure

Calcium chloride is used as road salt for melting snow, a drying agent in desiccators, for dehydrating organic liquids and gases, in refrigeration brines and antifreeze, as a dust-proofing agent, food additives, concrete hardening accelerator, and others. May react with strong oxidizers.

Shipping

There are no label or maximum shipping quantity requirements set by DOT.

Purification Methods

Crystallise it from ethanol. It is hygroscopic. It loses H2O at 200o so it can be dried at high temperatures to dehydrate it. The hexahydrate [7774-34-7] has m 30o and d 1.67.

Incompatibilities

The solution in water is a weak base. Reacts with zinc in presence of moisture, forming highlyflammable hydrogen gas. Dissolves violently in water with generation of much heat. Incompatible with water, bromine trifluoride; 2-furan, percarboxylic acid. May attack some building materials and metals in the presence of moisture.
