The hydrolysis of antimony chloride solution was studied by varying the pH from 1 to 6 at 25AdegC by adjusting with NaOH solution and holding for different period of time.
The role of ferric chloride concentration on the extraction of antimony chloride from stibnite concentrate was studied by varying the concentration of FeCl3 over a range of 100-300 g/L and keeping other parameters constant at arbitrary selected values.
(2003) reported antimony chloride as showing high estrogenicity.
--formation in situ of antimony chloride which may react with cellulose to alter the course of thermal decomposition and/or form a "heavy vapor tending to extinguish the flame." [24].
Antimony oxide (a-Sb2O4) is successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method using antimony chloride and urea as a reducing materials.
(2003) reported antimony chloride as showing high estrogenicity, "antimony oxides--not antimony chloride--are used as catalysts in the manufacture of PET." Although Vasami asserts that antimony oxides "are chemically and toxicologically distinct from antimony chlorides," the toxicological literature does not provide strong support for this assertion.
(2003) reported that antimony chloride has "high estrogenicity" in two bioassays.
