Reactions in which Zinc chloride is involved

  • ZnCl2 + 4NaOH "90^oC"--> Na2[Zn(OH)4] + 2NaCl
  • Na2[Zn(OH)4] + 4HCl -> 2NaCl + ZnCl2 + 4H2O
  • {M}O + 2H{X} -> {M}{X}2 + H2O , where M = Cu Ca Mg Sr Ba Hg Mn Cr Ni Fe Cd Zn Pb; X = Cl F Br I
  • {M} + 2H{X} -> {M}{X}2 + H2"|^" , where M = Ca Mg Ba Sr Cd Zn; X = Cl F Br I
  • {M} + {Hal}2 = {M}{Hal}2 , where M = Mg Ca Ba Sr Cd Zn; Hal = F Cl Br I
