Strontium chloride is the inorganic salt consisting of strontium and chloride. In organic synthesis, it can be used as the resource for the manufacturing of other kinds of strontium compound. Compared with the sulfide, it has the advantage of not reacting with oxygen and carbon dioxide, which facilitates industrial handling.
2) Function & Application
Strontium chloride is the precursor to othercompounds of strontium, such as yellow SrCrO4, whichis used as a corrosion inhibitor for aluminum. Strontiumchloride is the compound usually used as a red coloringagent in fireworks. It imparts a much more intense redcolor to the flames than other alternatives. It is employedin small quantities in glass making and metallurgy. Theradioactive isotope, strontium-89, used for the treatmentof bone cancer. It is usually administered in the form ofstrontium chloride. Seawater aquaria require small amounts of strontium chloride, which is consumed inthe production of the exoskeletons of certain planktons.SrCl2 is useful in reducing tooth sensitivity by forming a barrier over microscopic tubules in the dentin-containing nerve endings that have become exposed by gum recession.
