Barium hydroxide (CAS 12230-71-6)


Barium hydroxide (CAS 12230-71-6)

Barium hydroxide is a chemical compound with the chemical formula Ba(OH)2(H2O)x. The monohydrate (x = 1), known as baryta or baryta-water, is one of the principal compounds of barium. This white granular monohydrate is the usual commercial form.

Industrially, barium hydroxide is used as the precursor to other barium compounds. The monohydrate is used to dehydrate and remove sulfate from various products.[5] This application exploits the very low solubility of barium sulfate. This industrial application is also applied to laboratory uses.
