What is Ferrous Sulfate


Gerhold Chemetals Co., Ltd. are supply Ferrous Sulfate for sale, now let me introduce the information about Ferrous sulfate for you;

Ferrous sulfate is blue-green monoclinic crystal or granule, odorless. Weathered in dry air and oxidized to brown basic iron sulphate in humid air. It became a tetrahydrate at 56.6 ° C and became a monohydrate at 65 ° C. Soluble in water, almost insoluble in ethanol. The aqueous solution slowly oxidizes in the air when it is cold, and oxidizes faster when it is hot. The addition of alkali or light can accelerate its oxidation. Relative density (d15) 1.897. Irritating. Anhydrous ferrous sulfate is a white powder. The crystal water contains light green crystals.
