Molecule Structure Image



Barium chlorate is a white crystalline solid. It is an irritant, as are all barium compounds. If consumed, barium chlorate can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. It is used in pyrotechnics to produce a green color. A powerful oxidizing agent, the compound is used to manufacture matches. Barium chlorate can be produced through a double replacement reaction of barium chloride and sodium chlorate.
