Description

Tin dioxide, also known by the systematic name tin(IV) oxide and stannic oxide in the older notation, is the inorganic compound with the formula SnO2. The mineral form of SnO2 is called cassiterite, and this is the main ore of tin. Tin oxide is the most important raw material in tin chemistry. This colourless, diamagnetic solid is amphoteric. Tin dioxide occurs naturally but is purified by reduction to the metal followed by burning tin in air.

Appearance

Tin oxide is a white powder.

Solubility

Stannic oxide is insoluble in water but soluble in concentrated sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid. Tin dioxide reacts vigorously with strong reducing agents and is incompatible with chlorine trifluorid

Uses

Tin oxide is used as pigment in the ceramic industry.
