Barium Chloride Formula, also known as Barium dichloride formula, is given in this article. This soluble barium salt comes from a direct reaction of chlorine and barium. The chemical formula or molecule of Barium Chloride is BaCl2.
It is firm in white and odorless. It is hygroscopic and dissolves in water. It shines into two polymorphs (forms) which are the structure of cubic fluorite (CaF2) and the structure of orthorhombic cotunnite (PbCl2).
It is widely used in laboratories to test sulfate ions, purify brine solution, and manufacture pigments and other barium salts. It is inexpensive but toxic and produces a yellow-green flame.
