Calcium chloride Usage And Synthesis
UsesAnhydrous calcium chloride is commonly used in industrial production and laboratories as a dehydrating and drying agent; it is mainly used to dry gases (nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, hydrogen chloride, sulfur dioxide, etc., but not ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and alcohol), petroleum, organic solvents, etc. It is used as a dehydrating agent in the production of alcohols, esters, ethers and acrylic resins.
In inorganic industries, it is a raw ingredient in producing metallic calcium and various calcium salts. It is used as a protecting and refining agent for aluminum magnesium metallurgy. It is used to remove ink in waste paper processing.
It is also used as a sizing agent and fire retardant in textile production, as well as a fog-clearing agent in harbors, dust collector for roads, water purifier, food preservative, and road cleanser. It is a precipitant in producing lake colored pigments.
CaCl2•6H2O mixed with ice at a 1.44:1 ratio is used in laboratories as a cryogen, which can achieve -54.9℃ temperatures. Calcium chloride solution is an important cryogen in freezers and ice production, and it can speed up the hardening of cement and fortify building motar against cold weather, making it an excellent antifreeze for buildings.
It is also used to treat symptoms of low blood calcium such as tetany, urticaria, exudative edema, colic and ureteral colic, magnesium poisoning, etc. In the food industry,  it is used as a calcium strengthener, hardening agent, chelating agent, and drying agent.
It can also test for the carbon content of steel, and it can test the vitality of blood sugar, serum phosphorous, serum alkaline phosphatase.
ToxicityLD50 4 g/kg (Large mice, oral). ADI has not regulations. Generally approved to be safe (USFDA)
Will erode skin upon contact and causes welts. Wear protective clothing, gloves, and tall boots when producing and transporting, and protect skin.
Chemical PropertiesCalcium chloride, CaC12, is colorless deliquescent solid that is soluble in water and ethanol. It is formed from the reaction of calcium carbonate and hydrochloric acid or calcium hydroxide and ammonium chloride. It is used in medicine, as an antifreeze, and as a coagulant.
Chemical PropertiesCalcium chloride is a colorless to off-white crystalline solid which is deliquescent (absorb water). When heated, crystals lose water @ 100C.
Usescalcium chloride is an astringent. It also helps improve the reaction among certain ingredients used in cosmetic formulations. This inorganic salt is no longer commonly used in skin care products and is being replaced with potassium chloride.
UsesCalcium Chloride is a general purpose food additive, the anhydrous form being readily soluble in water with a solubility of 59 g in 100 ml of water at 0°c. it dissolves with the liberation of heat. it also exists as calcium chloride dihydrate, being very soluble in water with a solubility of 97 g in 100 ml at 0°c. it is used as a firming agent for canned tomatoes, potatoes, and apple slices. in evaporated milk, it is used at levels not more than 0.1% to adjust the salt balance so as to prevent coagulation of milk during sterilization. it is used with disodium edta to protect the flavor in pickles and as a source of calcium ions for reaction with alginates to form gels.
UsesFor the treatment of hypocalcemia in those conditions requiring a prompt increase in blood plasma calcium levels, for the treatment of magnesium intoxication due to overdosage of magnesium sulfate, and used to combat the deleterious effects of hyperkalemi
UsesCalcium chloride is highly hygroscopic and is often used as a desiccant.
UsesIt is highly hygroscopic and is often used as a desiccant.
UsesObtained as a by-product in the manufacture of potassium chlorate. The white crystals, soluble in water and alcohol, are deliquescent and must be kept in a well-stoppered bottle. Calcium chloride was used in iodized collodion formulas and in collodion emulsions. It was also an important desiccating substance used in tin calcium tubes designed to store presensitized platinum papers.
Brand nameCal Plus (Mallinckrodt).
General DescriptionWhite to off-white solid. Sinks and mixes with water.
Air & Water ReactionsDeliquescent. Water soluble. Adding Calcium chloride to hot water caused violent boiling, [MCA Case History No. 69].
Reactivity ProfileBromine trifluoride rapidly attacks the following salts: barium chloride, cadmium chloride, Calcium chloride, cesium chloride, lithium chloride, silver chloride, rubidium chloride, potassium bromide, potassium chloride, potassium iodide, rhodium tetrabromide, sodium bromide, sodium chloride, and sodium iodide [Mellor 2 Supp. 1:164, 165 1956]. Long term exposure of Calcium chloride solution upon a zinc coated galvanized iron vessel caused slow evolution of hydrogen which ignited and exploded [Bretherick, 5th Ed., 1995].
Health HazardInhalation causes irritation of nose and throat. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with eyes (particularly by dust) causes irritation and possible transient corneal injury. Contact of solid with dry skin causes mild irritation; strong solutions can cause marked irritation, even a superficial burn.
Safety ProfileModerately toxic by ingestion. Poison by intravenous, intramuscular, intraperitoneal, and subcutaneous routes. Human systemic effects: dermatitis, changes in calcium. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. Mutation data reported. Reacts violently with (B203 + CaO), BrF3. Reaction with zinc releases explosive hydrogen gas. Catalyzes exothermic polymerization of methyl vinyl ether. Exothermic reaction with water. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl-. See also CALCIUM COMPOUNDS and CHLORIDES.
Potential ExposureCalcium chloride is used as road salt for melting snow, a drying agent in desiccators, for dehydrating organic liquids and gases, in refrigeration brines and antifreeze, as a dust-proofing agent, food additives, concrete hardening accelerator, and others. May react with strong oxidizers.
First aidIf this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit
ShippingThere are no label or maximum shipping quantity requirements set by DOT.
Purification MethodsIt is available as fused granules or cubic crystals. It is very hygroscopic, very soluble in H2O (exothermic), and EtOH. Store it in a tightly closed container. [Ehrlich in Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry (Ed. Brauer) Academic Press Vol I p 931 1963.]
IncompatibilitiesThe solution in water is a weak base. Reacts with zinc in presence of moisture, forming highlyflammable hydrogen gas. Dissolves violently in water with generation of much heat. Incompatible with water, bromine trifluoride; 2-furan, percarboxylic acid. May attack some building materials and metals in the presence of moisture.
