In present process, ferric chloride reacts with antimony trisulphide to produce an antimony trichloride. 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.
The antimony trichloride, erbium nitrate hexahydrate, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, and ammonium bicarbonate were purchased from Sinopharm Chemical Reagent Co.
For synthesis of zinc-copper-antimony alloy thin as-deposited film, we utilized 50 mL of electrolyte containing copper sulfate pentahydrate, zinc sulfate, and antimony trichloride. It was reported that an excess of antimony is required in order to produce famatinite with low CuS [1, 5].
