Common Chemical Catalysts Used in Manufacturing in 2019

Posted by Diane Milner on Mar 18, 2019 9:43:00 AM

Chemical reactions are all around us, impacting almost every aspect of our lives, often in ways we don’t even realize. But sometimes these reactions require additional “assistance” to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of energy required to achieve completion. And this assistance is provided by chemical catalysts, substances that are added to the chemicals being used to achieve the necessary increased efficiency or decreased energy requirements.

Ammonium Tungstate comes in two main forms – paratungstate and metatungstate. Ammonium paratungstate is a white crystalline salt of ammonium and tungsten, partly soluble in water, and is usually found in one of two states within its chemical compound – either pentahydrate (with five molecules of water) and decahydrate (with ten molecules of water).

What You Need to Know About Tin (II) Chloride

Posted by Diane Milner on Dec 3, 2018 12:57:00 PM


Tin (II) chloride, dihydrate, not to be confused with Tin (II) chloride, anhydrous, is created through dissolving tin in hydrochloric acid. This is followed by evaporation and crystallization. Tin (II) chloride, dihydrate, then, is colorless and crystal-like in appearance, and it attracts oxygen from the air. It is also transformed to insoluble oxychloride, which is a two part composite—oxygen and chlorine—with a contributing element or basic chloride. Other terms for Tin (II) chloride, dihydrate include stannous chloride.

Tin (II) Fluoride and a Generation of Healthier Teeth

Posted by Diane Milner on Nov 26, 2018 9:12:00 AM

Tin (II) fluoride is a slightly water soluble, white, lustrous crystalline powder. Also known as Stannous fluoride, it is widely used as an oral care component in toothpastes, powders, gels and oral rinses. It is known to make teeth more resistant to the acids and bacteria that cause tooth decay. Tin (II) fluoride is the only fluoride that not only works to fight cavity progression and development but also plaque, gingivitis and dental sensitivity.
