According to a new report published by Transparency Market Research, the strontium carbonate market will record significant growth owing to the rising demand in the electronics & telecommunication industry across the globe. The report titled, “Strontium Carbonate Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 – 2026, ” anticipates that the global market will grow remarkably during the forecast period.
Strontium, an alkaline earth metal, ranks 15th in terms of abundance among elements found in the earth’s crust. It occurs in the form of strontianite and celestine mineral ores. Strontianite is composed of strontium carbonate, while celestine is composed of strontium sulfate. These two are the only minerals that contain strontium in an amount sufficient to make its recovery practical. Strontium does not occur as a free element in nature, due to its high reactivity to air and water. It exists in the form of its compounds, majorly as carbonate and sulfate salts.
Strontium carbonate is the carbonate salt of strontium with chemical formula SrCO3. It appears in the form of white or grey powder. It occurs in the form of strontianite mineral deposits in nature; however, only a few deposits discovered are suitable for development. Even though strontianite would be more useful of the two commonly found minerals (the other being celestine), as strontium carbonate is the largely used compound with a wide variety of applications; it is not available in quantities sufficient to make its recovery practical. Strontium carbonate is hygroscopic in nature i. e. it can attract and hold water molecules from the surroundings. This makes it a highly preferred strontium compound. Another factor is low cost of production.
Being a weak Lewis base, strontium carbonate can be employed to produce different strontium compounds, simply by using the corresponding acid. Strontium chloride can be prepared by treating strontium carbonate with hydrochloric acid. The reaction between strontium carbonate and sodium dichromate yields strontium chromate. Strontium nitrate is typically produced by the reaction of nitric acid with strontium carbonate. The decomposition of strontium carbonate results in the formation of strontium oxide.
Strontium aluminate (SrAl2O4) and strontium chromate (SrCrO4), which are prepared from strontium carbonate, are used in the paints & coatings industry for luminescence requirements and anti-corrosive coatings, respectively. Strontium carbonate descendants such as strontium chloride, strontium ranelate, strontium acetate, strontium peroxide, and strontium nitrate are used in various drugs.
