Preparation of chromium oxide Cr2O3 powder

Prices in the national electricity market averaged $87 per megawatt-hour in the first three months of the year, above the level promised by the federal government. Wholesale electricity prices for industry and large businesses have already exceeded the level promised by the federal government, adding another cost pressure to the economy. Prices in the national electricity market averaged $87 per megawatt-hour in the first three months of this year, up more than two-thirds from the December 2021 quarter, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) said recently. That's up 141% from the March 2021 quarter.

Because of the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk Chromium Oxide, Cr2O3 Overview, Chromium Oxide Applications, Cr2O3 Suppliers, Chromium Oxide Price are still very uncertain.

Overview of chromium oxide Cr2O3 powder

Chromium oxide is an inorganic substance with the chemical formula Cr2O3. It is a light green to dark green small hexagonal crystal. Turns brown when hot, and remains green when cold. The crystals are extremely hard and stable, and there is no change even when hydrogen is introduced under red heat. Soluble in heated potassium bromate solution, slightly soluble in acids and bases, almost insoluble in water, ethanol and acetone. Also stimulating.

Preparation of chromium oxide Cr2O3 powder

redox method

It is prepared by mixing potassium dichromate and sulfur and performing reduction reaction through wet grinding, hot water washing, pressure filtration, drying and crushing.

K2Cr2O7 + S = K2SO4 + Cr2O3

Chromium trioxide decomposition method

It can be obtained by thermal decomposition of chromic anhydride at 1100°C, cooling and high-speed pulverization. Due to the high temperature required, a single-phase electric furnace is generally used for heating.

4CrO3= 2Cr2O3 + 3O2↑ (Condition: Heating at 1100°C)

Chromium hydroxide decomposition method

Or thermally decomposed with chromium hydroxide at high temperature, washed, dried and pulverized.

2Cr(OH)3= Cr2O3 + 3H2O

Ammonium dichromate decomposition method

(NH4)2Cr2O7= N2↑ + Cr2O3+ 4H2O

Application of chromium oxide Cr2O3 powder

1. Lead chrome green is the main coloring pigment in the paint industry, and most green paints are formulated with this pigment. Also, it is used in paints and plastics. Its application range is very similar to that of lead chrome yellow. Due to the presence of chrome yellow in the ingredients, the toxicity of lead should be noted in its application. Lead chrome green contains iron blue and oxidant lead chromate, so when the dust encounters sparks, there is a possibility of spontaneous combustion, so be careful when drying and crushing. Lead chrome green completely loses the characteristics of green pigment after burning and turns into a dark brown-yellow substance. In addition, in the production of nitro paint, the rolling process is not directly rolled with lead chrome green,

2. Used in metallurgy, ceramics, chromium oxide refractories, pigment industrial raw materials and organic synthesis catalysts.

3. Used as analytical reagents and catalysts.

4. It is used as a coloring, wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant filler for adhesives and sealants. It can also be used as a colorant for enamel, ceramics, artificial leather and building materials, a catalyst for organic chemical synthesis, a light-resistant coating and a special ink for printing money.

5. Used as a colorant for cosmetics, mainly for eye makeup, not for oral and lip makeup, not recommended for facial makeup and nail polish.

6. Chromium oxide is one of the main components of silver plating bright liquid. The newly prepared chromium trioxide is an important raw material for the preparation of chromium fluoride and chromium bromide.

According to OPEC's monthly report, crude oil demand growth in 2022 is forecast to be 3.1 million b / d (previously 3.36 million b / d). Global economic growth is forecast to be 3.1% in 2022 (3.5% previously forecast) and 3.1% in 2023 (3.2% previously forecast). The global oil market is expected to enter a state of oversupply this quarter.


In the first half of 2022, France net imported 2.5 TWh, exported about 16.4 TWh and imported 18.9 TWh, according to the latest figures from EnAppSys, an energy consultancy. By comparison, France's net export of electricity reached 21.5 terawatt hours in the second half of 2021.

Jean-Paul Harreman, director of Enappsys, believes that the main problem for France to change from a power exporter to a net importer is the weak supply of nuclear energy in France in the first half of the year.

In terms of nuclear power supply, French nuclear power generation reached about 152.72 terawatt hours in the first half of this year, about 28.04 terawatt hours less than in the same period in 2021, according to Ember, an energy consultancy.


According to foreign media reports, so far, only half of the 56 nuclear reactors in France are in normal operation. EDF, the main operator of French nuclear power, said it shut down its reactors because of routine maintenance, safety reviews and corrosion risks.
