Chromium chloride hexahydrate

Product Name: Chromium chloride hexahydrate

Alias: Chromium chloride hexahydrate

Chemical formula: CrCl3·6H2O

CAS No: 10060-12-5

Chemical properties:

It becomes a green solution after boiling with water for a long time. Scorching in the air becomes chromium trioxide. It can be sublimated in a stream of chlorine, and co-heated with carbon tetrachloride at 400°C can obtain a kinetic inert purple anhydrate. There are three variants of hexahydrate, dark green, light green, and purple. They all become a mixture of dark green and purple in aqueous solutions, but appear dark green in organic solvents such as DMSO, DMF, and ethanol.

Technical requirements: HG/T 4311-2012
