Main Information:

  • Calcium Chloride Dihydrate
  • Molecular Formula: CaCl2.2H2O
  • CAS Number: 10043-52-4
  • Manufacturer: TETRA Chemicals

Key Properties:

  • Calcium chloride can be found in solid state at room temperature, and is available as flakes, granules and powdered form.
  • Calcium chloride is salty to taste. Hence, it is added to many food products like canned vegetables, pickles etc.
  • In solid form, calcium chloride is white in colour, while in liquidated form, it is colourless.
  • Usually in a molten state, it is a good conductor of electricity.
  • Calcium chloride is a bad conductor of heat.
  • Its boiling point is as high as 1600 C.
  • It is soluble both in inorganic solvents like water, as well as organic solvents like ethanol.
  • It absorbs moisture from air. If exposed to open air, it tends to become liquid. That is why, it is often called a deliquescent substance.
  • It has a low melting point, which means it can be dissolved at a very low temperature.
  • Calcium chloride is exothermic in nature, that is, it releases heat during any chemical reactions.
  • When calcium chloride is exposed to water, a large amount of heat is liberated, which can cause sputtering and boiling. The end product of this reaction is calcium hydroxide and chlorine gas.
