TinCompounds

  • Stannous Chloride - Wikipedia- Tin (II) Chloride
    • Melting Point 247 °C (477 °F; 520 K) (anhydrous) (evaporates as a gas. I believe the gas becomes an oxide fume. I am not sure)
    • Boiling point 623 °C (1,153 °F; 896 K) (decomposes)
    • Solubility in water : 83.9 g/100 ml (0 °C) Hydrolyses Tin(II) chloride can dissolve in less than its own mass of water without apparent decomposition, but as the solution is diluted hydrolysis occurs to form an insoluble basic salt: SnCl2 (aq) + H2O (l) ⇌ Sn(OH)Cl (s) + HCl (aq)
  • I have not tried this material as a solution. It seems pricey for this and the insoluble basic salt formation seems to prevent its usefulness.

Stannous chloride is used for fuming. The fumes contain the HIGHLY DANGEROUS chlorine gas. This is much more hazardous than hydrochloric acid vapor. You should have serious respiratory protection. I believe that this should be a mask with acid vapor cartridges. It should be fit tested. The respirator should only be a backup. You should contact a safety expert. It produces better results when combined with bismuth subnitrate. Larger amounts of bismuth subnitrate produce smokey effects. Bismuth looks to be hard on kilns and elements. My best results were had at 850˚F . I dropped the material into a target pot. The target was trashed.

  • Tin(IV) chloride - Stannic Chloride - Tin (IV)˚
    • This compound fumes at room temperature and should not be confused with Stannous Chloride
