A group of specific aluminium salts having the general formula AlnCl(3n-m)(OH)m. It is used in cosmetics as an antiperspirant and as a coagulant in water purification. In water purification, this compound is preferred in some cases because of its high charge, which makes it more effective at destabilizing and removing suspended materials than other aluminium salts such as aluminium sulfate, aluminium chloride and various forms of poly aluminium chloride and poly aluminium chlorosulfite, in which the aluminium structure results in a lower net charge than aluminium chlorohydrate. Further, the high degree of neutralization of the HCl results in minimal impact on treated water pH when compared to other aluminium and iron salts.
Sodium gluconate is widely used in textile dyeing, printing and metal surface water treatment. It is also used as a chelating agent, a steel surface cleaning agent, a cleaning agent for glass bottles, and as a chelating agent for cement, plating and alumina dyeing industries.
Medicinal and Cosmetic Uses. Liquid paraffin has many uses in the medical field. Because liquid paraffin passes through the body's intestinal tract without being absorbed, it can be used as a laxative to limit the amount of water removed from the stool and ease constipation.
Catalysts & Chemical Auxiliary Agents for sale in Zambia
A catalyst is a substance that can be added to a reaction to increase the reaction rate without getting consumed in the process. Catalysts typically speed up a reaction by reducing the activation energy or changing the reaction mechanism. Common types of catalysts include enzymes, acid-base catalysts, and heterogeneous catalysts. Chemical auxiliary agents are substances like solvents, separation agents, or dispersing agents that are used in the course of a chemical synthesis but are not reagents because they are not incorporated into the chemical product. Browse through this category for various catalysts and chemical auxiliary agents available in Zambian stores.
