About Barium Chromate : Properties & Uses
A fine light yellow powder, it produces a green flame when it is heated, the result of Barium Ions. Its has been found to be useful in many capacities and used as an oxidizing agent and as a pigment in paints, porcelains, fuses, coloring glasses and ceramics.

It is toxic and extremely hazardous in case of ingestion, of inhalation. Its also hazardous in case of skin contact as well as eye contact. So avoid ingestion and inhalation as well as eye and skin-contact and also spills on your clothing. While handling, wear suitable protective clothing as well as suitable respiratory equipment.
Being a hazardous chemical, it should be locked up in a Container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place, away from heat,acids, alkalies, reducing agents and other sources of ignition and combustible material..

  • Appearance           : Yellow Powder
  • Molecular formula    : BaCrO4
  • Molecular Weight     : 253.32
  • Solubility                : Insoluble in water but soluble in Acids.
  • As a sulfate scavenger in chromium electroplating baths. Adding , enhances the life of the bath through addition to the chromic acid concentration.

  • As an oxidizing agent, making it useful as a burn rate modifier in pyrotechnic compositions. It is especially useful in delay compositions such as delay fuses.

  • As a corrosion inhibitive pigment when zinc-alloy electroplating surfaces.

  • As an ingredient when mixed with solid fumaric acid can be used in the removal of impurities and residual moisture from organic dry-cleaning solvents or from petroleum fuels.

  • As an ingredient in the composition of a catalyst for alkane dehydration.

  • As a pigment by the Paint Industry.

  • As an ingredient in ignition control devices, safety matches and special pyrotechnic composition by the ordnance industry.

  • As a coloring agent by the ceramic industry.

  • As an ingredient in the manufacture of pigments, oil lubricants, PVC stabilizers and in the manufacture of other barium salts, such as Barium Sulfate, Barium Chromate and Barium Fluoride.

  • In fireworks to give a bright green color.

Barium Chromate




Toxicological Data on Ingredients:  Barium chromate LD50: Not available. LC50: Not available.


Section 3: Hazards Identification


Potential Acute Health Effects:

Extremely hazardous in case of ingestion, of inhalation. Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant). Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (permeator). Prolonged exposure may result in skin burns and ulcerations. Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Severe over-exposure can result in death.


Potential Chronic Health Effects:

CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Classified A1 (Confirmed for human.) by ACGIH.




The substance is toxic to blood, kidneys, lungs, the nervous system, liver, mucous membranes.

Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human organs.


Section 4: First Aid Measures


Eye Contact:

Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. WARM water MUST be used. Get medical attention.


Skin Contact:

In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention immediately.


Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate medical attention.



If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.


Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. WARNING: It may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.



If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention immediately.
