INTRODUCTION

Stannic chloride pentahydrate is a tin source compatible with chlorides. Biologically, it induces a slight inhibition in the catalytic activity of the enzyme horse liver alcohol dehydrogenase (HLADH). The pentahydrate is substitute for its anhydrous grade in applications where presence of water is permissible. Historically, stannous chloride was used as warfare chemical as it forms thick HCl fumes when in contact with water.

Manufacture
Stannic chloride is produced by chlorination of metallic tin by chlorine gas.

Structure

Applications

Stannic chloride pentahydrate has various end uses:
In production of Xyrogel that is applied in solid state gas censors
In preparation of indium tin oxide thin films for semiconductor industry
As mordant in fabric dyeing
As oxidant of acid dyes and in post-treatment of aniline dyes
It gives organo tin compounds (SnR4) when treated with Grignards reagent
As catalyst in acylation of thiophene to 2-acetylthiophene
As reactant in manufacture of APIs and agrochemicals
As catalyst in production of polystyrene
As highly efficient disinfectant
In conductive coatings, polymers, resins, and wood preservatives
