(zink klor' ide).
Zinc chloride [7646-85-7].
Zinc Chloride contains NLT 97.0% and NMT 100.5% of ZnCl2.
• A. Identification TestsGeneral, Zinc 191: Meets the requirements
• B. Identification TestsGeneral, Chloride 191: Meets the requirements
Sample solution: Dissolve 12 g of Zinc Chloride in 500 mL of water in a 1-L volumetric flask. Add 12 g of ammonium chloride, and dilute with water to volume.
Analysis: Pipet 25 mL of the Sample solution into a 400-mL beaker. Add 100 mL of water, 10 mL of ammoniaammonium chloride buffer TS, and 1 mL of 0.5 mg/mL of eriochrome black T solution. Titrate with 0.05 M edetate disodium VS to a deep blue endpoint. Each mL of 0.05 M edetate disodium is equivalent to 6.815 mg of ZnCl2.
Acceptance criteria: 97.0%100.5%
• Chloride and Sulfate, Sulfate 221
Sample solution: 1.0 g in 30 mL of water
Acceptance criteria: 20 mL of the Sample solution shows no more sulfate than corresponds to 0.20 mL of 0.020 N sulfuric acid (0.03%).
• Lead 251
Standard solution: Add 5 mL of water, 2.50 mL of Standard lead solution (see Heavy Metals 231), and 15 mL of Potassium cyanide solution (100 mg/mL) to a similar color-comparison tube.
Sample solution: Dissolve 0.50 g in 5 mL of water, and transfer the solution to a color-comparison tube. Add 15 mL of Potassium cyanide solution (100 mg/mL), and allow the mixture to become clear.
Analysis: To each tube add 0.1 mL of sodium sulfide TS. Mix the contents of each tube, and allow to stand for 5 min.
Acceptance criteria: Viewed downward over a white surface, the Sample solution is not darker than the Standard solution (NMT 0.005%).
• Limit of Ammonium Salts
Sample solution: 100 mg/mL
Analysis: To 5 mL of Sample solution add 1 N sodium hydroxide until the precipitate first formed is redissolved, then warm the solution.
Acceptance criteria: No odor of ammonia is perceptible.
• Limit of Oxychloride
Sample solution: Dissolve 1.0 g in 20 mL of water, and add 20 mL of alcohol.
Analysis: To 10 mL of the Sample solution add 0.30 mL of 1.0 N hydrochloric acid.
Acceptance criteria: The solution becomes perfectly clear.
• Alkalies and Alkaline Earths
Sample solution: Dissolve 2.0 g in 150 mL of water contained in a 200-mL volumetric flask. Add sufficient ammonium sulfide TS to precipitate the zinc completely, and dilute with water to volume. Filter through a dry filter, and reject the first portion of the filtrate.
Analysis: To 100 mL of the Sample solution add 5 drops of sulfuric acid. Evaporate to dryness, and ignite.
Acceptance criteria: The weight of the residue is NMT 10 mg (1.0%).
• Packaging and Storage: Preserve in tight containers.
