Cobalt hydroxide Usage And Synthesis
Physical PropertiesTwo forms occur, a rose-red powder (more stable) and a bluish-green powder less stable than the red form; rhombohedral crystals; density 3.597 g/cm3; decomposes on heating; practically insoluble in water 3.2 mg/L; Ksp 1.0x10–15; soluble in acids and ammonia; insoluble in dilute alkalis.
UsesCobalt(II) hydroxide is used as a drier for paints and varnishes and is added to lithographic printing inks to enhance their drying properties. Other applications are in the preparation of cobalt salts; as a catalyst; and in storage battery electrodes.
PreparationCobalt(II) hydroxide is obtained as a precipitate when an alkaline hydroxide is added to an aqueous solution of cobalt(II) salt:
CoCl2 + 2NaOH → Co(OH)2 + 2NaCl
Co(NO3)2 + 2NaOH → Co(OH)2 + 2NaNO3
ReactionsThermal decomposition to cobaltous oxide, CoO, occurs at 168°C in a vacuum.
Cobalt(II) hydroxide is oxidized by air and other oxidizing agents, forming cobalt(III) hydroxide, Co(OH)3. Reactions with mineral acids produce corresponding Co2+ salts.
Chemical PropertiesRose-red powder.Soluble in acids and ammonium salt solutions; insoluble in water and alkalies.
UsesCobalt salts, paint and varnish driers, catalyst, storage-battery electrodes.
