Zinc Nitrate


Available Options

Zinc nitrate has no large scale application but is used on a laboratory scale for the synthesis of coordination polymers, its controlled decomposition to zinc oxide has also been used for the generation of various ZnO based structures, including nanowires.

It can be used as a mordant in dyeing. An example reaction gives a precipitate of zinc carbonate:

Zn(NO3)2 + Na2CO3 → ZnCO3 + 2 NaNO3
