Preparation method of tungsten oxide

Koalas were declared endangered in eastern Australia on Friday, with more and more koalas dying from disease, habitat loss, and other threats. Earlier, the koala was considered a vulnerable species, and the Commonwealth Department of the Environment changed its protection level to endangered on the east coast of Queensland, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory. Many koalas in Australia are infected with chlamydia. The disease can cause blindness, infection, and infertility. Last year, the Australian Koala Foundation said Australia had lost about 30 percent of its koala population in the past three years. Without immediate action, the species could become extinct by 2050.
Unlike koalas, which are on the brink of extinction, the market demand for tungsten oxide, tungsten oxide overview, tungsten oxide application, tungsten oxide supplier, tungsten oxide price will grow substantially.

Tungsten oxide overview

Tungsten trioxide is a powder metallurgy raw material for the production of cemented carbide and tungsten products. According to the national standard (GB/T 3457-1998), it is divided into two types, namely tungsten trioxide (referred to as yellow tungsten), molecular formula is WO3, and blue tungsten oxide (referred to as blue tungsten, is a mixed tungsten oxide), molecular formula W20O58. Yellow tungsten is light yellow crystalline powder, blue tungsten is dark blue or blue-black crystalline powder.

Preparation method of tungsten oxide

1. Ammonium tungstate method: The tungsten concentrate is hydrolyzed by sodium hydroxide, neutralized with hydrochloric acid, and then reacted with ammonium chloride to generate ammonium tungstate, which is then added with hydrochloric acid for acid hydrolysis to generate tungstic acid, which is then decomposed by roasting. , pulverized to obtain tungsten trioxide.

2. Hydrochloric acid decomposition method of tungstate. The saturated aqueous solution of sodium tungstate Na2WO4, calcium tungstate CaWO4 and other tungstate salts is heated, and the solution is slowly added dropwise into 2-3 times excess boiling concentrated hydrochloric acid by molar ratio. According to the above reaction, yellow tungstic acid is precipitated. At this time, if the dripping speed is too fast or the liquid temperature drops, suspension or colloidal precipitation is likely to be formed, which brings difficulties to the next treatment. After the dropwise addition, heating was continued on a water bath for 1 h, and the precipitate became easy to filter. After standing, it was washed several times with 5% ammonium nitrate aqueous solution to completely remove Cl-. After filtration, it is dried at 120 °C, and finally heated to 600 °C, the tungstic acid is completely dehydrated and becomes tungsten trioxide.

3. Thermal decomposition of ammonium paratungstate. Put ammonium paratungstate (NH4) 10W12O41·11H2O purified by recrystallization method into a porcelain crucible, and when heated to above about 400 ℃, ammonia volatilizes to obtain tungsten trioxide.

Application of tungsten oxide WO3 powder

Tungsten oxide has a variety of uses in daily life. It is commonly used in the manufacture of phosphors for industrial X-ray screens and tungstates for fire-resistant fabrics. Due to its rich yellow element, tungsten oxide is also used as a pigment in ceramics and paints. In addition, other application examples of tungsten trioxide are as follows:

Tungsten oxide is mainly used in the production of tungsten powder and tungsten carbide powder by calcination reduction, and is further used in the production of cemented carbide products, such as the manufacture of tools and molds.

Tungsten oxide can also be used to manufacture pure tungsten products, tungsten rods, tungsten wires, tungsten electrodes; and use counterweights and radiation shielding materials.

In industrial production, a small amount is also used as a colorant for yellow ceramics. In the shipbuilding industry, tungsten oxide is used as an important anti-corrosion paint and coating material.

Tungsten oxide has been used to produce electrochromic windows, smart windows. These windows are electrically switchable glass that varies in light transmittance and applied voltage. This allows users to tint their windows by changing the heat or light.
