The effect of hydrochloric acid concentration on antimony chloride recovery was studied by varying its concentration over a range of 1 to 20g/L.
Five experiments were performed to study the effect of temperature on the extraction of antimony chloride from stibnite concentrate in the range of 60AdegC to 100AdegC.
In order to study the effect of variation of reaction time on the recovery of antimony chloride from stibnite grains, five experiments were carried out for different reaction times (i.e.
It converts the antimony sulfide mineral into antimony chloride complex with the production of elemental sulfur.
the oxygen inhibiting effect of the heavy vapors of antimony chloride
or oxychloride in addition to the physical inhibition of the oxidation chain reaction (wall effect) and chemical inhibition by chlorine" .
Analytical grade antimony chloride, urea, ammonium hydroxide, acridine orange and chloroform were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich Company and were used as received.
For the synthesis of antimony oxide, the solutions were prepared by adding antimony chloride (0.1 M, 50.0 mL) and urea (0.1 M, 50.0 mL) in double distilled water in equimolecular proportion.
