CESIUM NITRATE CsNO3

Properties of cesium nitrate CsNO3:

White, melts without decomposition, decomposes on further heating. Readily soluble in water with an endo-effect (without hydrolysis). Does not form crystalline hydrates. Strong oxidizing agent during sintering. In solution recovered only by atomic hydrogen.

 

Obtaining cesium nitrate CsNO3:

21 Cs + 26 HNO3 (diluted, cold) = 21 CsNO3 + NO↑ + N2O↑ + N2↑ + 13 H2O.

CsOH + HNO3 (diluted) = CsNO3 + H2O.

 

Сhemical reactions with cesium nitrate CsNO3:

2 CsNO3 = 2 CsNO2 + O2 (585-850° C).

CsNO3 (diluted) + 6 H2O = [Cs(H2O)6]+ + NO3- (pH 7).

CsNO3 (saturated) + (1 - 2)HNO3(conc.) = CsNO3·(1 - 2)HNO3 ↓ (normal temp.).

CsNO3 + 2 H0 (Zn, dilutedHCl) = CsNO2 + H2O (normal temp.),

CsNOs + 8H0(Zn, conc. NaOH) = NH3 ↑ + 2H2O + CsOH (boiling).

2 CsNO3 + (NH4)2SO4 = Cs2SO4 + 2 N2O + 4 H2O (350° C).

CsNO3 + Pb = CsNO2 + PbO (400° C).
