Cesium nitrate Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionCesium nitrate is a strong oxidizing material and may burst into flames when it is in contact with organic materials.
Cesium nitrate is used as a colorant and oxidizer in the pyrotechnic industry, in petroleum cracking, in scintillation counters, and in x-ray phosphors. It is used as a promoter in heterogeneous catalysts.

Chemical Propertiescolourless crystals
UsesUsed in the synthesis of cesium nitratocuprate, Cs2[Cu(NO3)4], which crystallizes in a square-planar coordination around the Cu center.1
UsesA reagent used as a colorant and an oxidizer in pyrotechnic compositions
Usespreparation of other Cs salts.
General DescriptionCesium nitrate is a colorless, glittering crystalline solid. Cesium nitrate is soluble in water. Cesium nitrate is a strong oxidizing material and may burst into flames on contact with organic materials.
Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble.
Reactivity ProfileMixtures of metal/nonmetal nitrates with alkyl esters may explode owing to the formation of alkyl nitrates. Mixtures a nitrate with phosphorus, tin (II) chloride, or other reducing agents may react explosively [Bretherick 1979 p. 108-109].
HazardDangerous, may ignite organic materials on contact.
Health HazardInhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors or substance may cause severe injury, burns or death. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
Fire HazardThese substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May explode from heat or contamination. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Safety ProfileModerately toxic by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. See also CESIUM and NITRATES.
Purification MethodsIt crystallises from water (0.6mL/g) between 100o and 0o. After 1 crystallisation of 99.9% grade salt, it had K, Na and Se at 0.8, 0.4 and 0.2 ppm respectively.
