BaCl2 A toxic salt obtained as colorless, water-soluble cubic crystals, melting at 963°C; used as a rat poison, in metal surface treatment, and as a laboratory reagent.

Barium Chloride


BaCl2, a salt that exists under normal conditions in the form of colorless crystals of the dihydrate Ba02·2H2O with a density of 3.1 g/cm3. It loses water on heating to 100° C. Anhydrous barium chloride melts at 960° C. It is highly soluble in water (35.7 g per 100 g H20 at 20° C). Barium chloride is produced by roasting a mixture of barite, coal, and calcium chloride in combustion furnaces. It is used to combat agricultural pests and as a weighting and clarifying compound in tanning. Alloys of barium chloride with chlorides of alkali and alkali earth metals are used in the tempering and quenching of steel.

The antispasmodic activity of methanol, ethyl acetate and chloroform extracts and pure compounds, Bakkenolide and reference drug Alverine, were studied against two spasmogenic substances: acetylcholine (Ach) and barium chloride (Ba[Cl.
Spasmolytic effect of different extracts from Hertia cheirifolia induced by acetylcholine and barium chloride on isolated rat duodenum.
The extracts and substances were allowed to act on the preparations for 5 min, and afterwards the agonists such as barium chloride were cumulatively added and were allowed to reach a steady state at each concentration.
