1.3 Synthetic Route

Stannous chloride dihydrate is dissolved with as little hot concentrated hydrochloric acid as possible. Slowly add sodium carbonate aqueous solution under stirring, because CO2 gas is produced, you must pay attention to the addition rate, and stop adding when the mixture is alkaline with phenolphthalein test. Heating 2~3h colorless hydrated oxide is quantitatively transformed into blue-black SnO with metallic luster. The product is washed several times with water and dried at 110 °C. The yield is about 80%.
