Barium Chloride Properties

Barium Chloride



Barium chloride is one of the most important water-soluble salts of is toxic and imparts a yellow-green coloration to a flame. In industry, barium chloride is mainly used in the purification of brine solution in caustic chlorine plants and also in the manufacture of heat treatment salts, case hardening of steel, in the manufacture of pigments, and in the manufacture of other barium salts. It is also used in fireworks to give a bright green color.However, its toxicity limits its applicability. It is also used as a test for sulfates. When these two chemicals are mixed with a sulfate salt, a white precipitate forms, which is barium.
