The solution of ferrous chloride (FeCl2) thus obtained was filtered.
Various compounds such as ferrous and ferric hydroxides, hydrated ferric oxide, and ferrous chloride may be deposited on the steel reinforcement.
Ferric chloride (Fe[Cl.sub.3] x 6[H.sub.2]O), ferrous chloride (Fe[Cl.sub.2] x 4[H.sub.2]O), ammonium hydroxide (N[H.sub.4]OH), vinyltrimethoxysilane ([H.sub.2]C=CHSi[(OC[H.sub.3]).sub.3]), N-vinylcaprolactam ([C.sub.8][H.sub.13]NO), and ammonium persulfate ([(N[H.sub.4]).sub.2][S.sub.2][O.sub.8]) were obtained from Aldrich.
To study the influence of the chemical form and the concentration of iron on the dielectric properties of milk, two iron sources were selected: ferrous gluconate and ferrous chloride, both analytically pure, and they were purchased from chemical reagents of national pharmaceutical group of China.
Industrially, ferric chloride is much more important than ferrous chloride. It is produced industrially by a reaction of dry chlorine with scrap iron (direct chlorination) at high temperatures.
The chemical reagents used in this experiment were ferric chloride hexahydrate (Fe[Cl.sub.3] x 6[H.sub.2]O), ferrous chloride tetrahydrate (Fe[Cl.sub.2] x 4[H.sub.2]O), and ferric nitrate nonahydrate (Fe[(N[O.sub.3]).sub.3] x 9[H.sub.2]O).
