Strontium peroxide Usage And Synthesis

Uses

Strontium dioxide (SrO2) can cause fires or explode when heated and in contact with organic substances. It is used as both a reducing agent and an oxidizing agent.

Chemical Properties

white to off-white powder

Uses

Strontium peroxide or strontium dioxide (SrO2) can cause fires or explode when heated and in contact with organic substances. It is used as both a reducing agent and an oxidizing agent.

Uses

Strontium Peroxide is an oxidizing agent that is used for bleaching. It has also been used in some pyrotechnic displays to provide a vivid-red color.

Preparation

Like the other alkaline earth peroxides, it can be prepared by reaction of the nitrate and sodium peroxide in a cold solution:
Sr(NO3)2+ Na2O2+xH2O
SrO2·xH2O+2NaNO3
The hydrated form is usually the octahydrate. If the anhydrate is desired, t

General Description

A white powder. Insoluble in water and slowly decomposed by water. Noncombustible, but accelerates the burning of combustible material.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water and slowly decomposed by water.

Reactivity Profile

Strontium peroxide may explode from friction, heat or contamination. Accelerates burning when involved in a fire. May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). If the combustible material is finely divided the mixture may be explosive.

Health Hazard

TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors, dusts or substance may cause severe injury, burns or death. Fire may produce irritating and/or toxic gases. Toxic fumes or dust may accumulate in confined areas (basement, tanks, hopper/tank cars, etc.). Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.

Fire Hazard

May explode from friction, heat or contamination. These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.

Safety Profile

A powerful oxidizer. A skin, eye, and mucous membrane irritant. Mixtures with organic materials readily ignite with friction or on contact with moisture. See also PEROXIDES and STRONTIUM COMPOUNDS.
