Barium Nitrate Production Cost Analysis 2021
Barium nitrate is an inorganic compound, and just like most barium salts, it is colourless and water-soluble. It burns with a green flame, acting as an oxidizer. It is typically utilised in the areas of pyrotechnics. Barium nitrate can be produced via two methods. While the first involves dissolving barium carbonate in nitric acid that allows any iron impurities to precipitate, which is later filtered, evaporated, and crystallised, the second involves combining barium sulphide with nitric acid.
Barium nitrate, if mixed with aluminium powder can act as an explosive. It is often mixed with thermite to form Thermate-TH3 that is further used in military thermite grenades. Barium nitrate is also a main ingredient in the SR 365. It is also utilised in the production method of barium oxide, for the vacuum tube industry, and for the green fire in pyrotechnics.
