Introduction The primary compound of potash is Potassium Carbonate and pearl ash or the salts of tartar are a more refined form of it. In the making of pearl ash, potash is baked in a kiln and this process removes the impure agents. In the 18th century before the use of baking powder, pearl ash was used to make quick bread. What is Potassium Carbonate? Potassium Carbonate is an inorganic compound that can be represented with the chemical formula- $\mathrm{K_2CO_3}$. It is also known as Carbonate of potash, or Dipotassium carbonate or Pearl ash. It can be defined as ... Read More

Introduction There are different definitions for the base. But the one definition that is common in all three definitions is bases react with acid to form a neutral compound or salts and water. And is given by G.-F. Rouelle. It is the ion that is present in this compound that makes it a characteristic property. Arrhenius proposed that the presence of hydroxyl ion, $\mathrm{OH^{-}}$ leads to the characteristic property of a base. According to Bronsted Lowry's theory of bases, a base is a substance that can accept protons or Hydrogen ions, $\mathrm{H^{+}}$. And in lewis's base theory base is a ... Read More

Introduction Barium Hydroxide is made up of the elements Ba, H and O. It seems to be a soft, shiny, alkaline earth metal found within Group 2 of the current periodic table. This is scientifically quite reactive. As a result, it would never be discovered in the environment as a pure element. These derivatives are utilised in the petroleum industry as well as radiography, but it is also useful in metallurgy. It is indeed a transparent white granule having no naturally toxic odour. Because of the hydroxides, $\mathrm{Ba(OH)_{2}}$ is harmful or could harm the skin as well as the eyes. ... Read More

Barium Carbonate

Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction Barium Carbonate has a molecular formula, (BaCO3). It is an inorganic chemical compound. It is tasteless and odourless. Like or similar to most of the other alkaline earth metal carbonates, it appears as white salt and it is insoluble or poorly soluble in water solution but, it is soluble in most of the acids, except sulphuric acid. It is one of the very important barium compounds commercially or economically. Although it is not soluble in pure water it is partially or slightly soluble in water saturated with carbon dioxide (CO2). It is used for the formation of rat poisons. ... Read More
