Antimony Trichloride

We are manufacturing Antimony Tri chloride in various forms.
ie; AR, LR and Technical Grade. These all grades are available in 5 kg pack to 50 kg packing in HDPE Drums or Bags.

Antimony Trichloride is the chemical compound with the formula SbCl3. The soft colorless solid with a pungent odor was known to the alchemists as butter of antimony.

SbCl3 is readily hydrolyzed and samples of SbCl3 must be protected from moisture. With a limited amount of water it forms antimony oxychloridereleasing hydrogen chloride: SbCl3 + H2O → SbOCl + 2 HCl.

With more water it forms Sb4O5Cl2which on heating to 460° under argon converts to Sb8O11Cll2.
