1.3 Synthetic Route
The alkaline hydrolysis method melts the tin block and quenches it into tin flower by water, and then mixes with caustic soda and sodium nitrate, and the reaction temperature rises from 300 °C to 800 °C to generate sodium stannate, which is cooled and dissolved with water, and then added sodium sulfide and hydrogen peroxide purification to remove impurities, and after precipitation, it is filtered by evaporation, concentrated by evaporation, centrifuged, dried and crushed to obtain sodium stannate products.
The use of sodium stannate
It is mainly used for alkaline tin plating and copper plating in the electroplating industry and electroless plating of tin alloys, zinc-tin alloys, aluminum alloys, and other alloys. It is used as a fire retardant and weighting agent in the textile industry and as a mordant in the printing and dyeing industry. They are also used in glass, ceramics, and other industries.
