Rubidium Carbonate is white powder, easy to absorb moisture, strongly alkaline, soluble in water, insoluble in ethanol, melting point 837°C. It is irritating. It is often used as an analytical reagent, and also used to synthesize other rubidium salts, the basic raw materials of other rubidium salts, the raw materials containing rubidium single crystals, and it is used as a catalyst in special glass, ceramic industry, and chemical industry.
Rubidium Carbonate can be obtained by introducing carbon dioxide into the filtrate obtained from the reaction of rubidium sulfate and barium hydroxide, or by reacting rubidium nitrate with excess oxalic acid to prepare rubidium oxalate, and then calcining and removing insoluble impurities. It is used to make special glass.
If Rubidium Carbonate is inhaled, please move the patient to fresh air; if skin contact, remove contaminated clothing, wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water, if you feel unwell, seek medical advice; if eye contact is clear, separate eyelids. Rinse with running water or normal saline, and seek medical attention immediately; if ingested, rinse your mouth immediately, prohibit vomiting, and seek medical attention immediately. Move the patient to a safe place, consult a doctor, and if possible, please show this chemical safety technical specification to the doctor on site.
If Rubidium Carbonate leaks, collect the leaked liquid in a sealable container as far as possible in a small amount, absorb it with sand, activated carbon or other inert materials, and move it to a safe place. It is forbidden to flush into the sewer; if a large amount of Rubidium Carbonate leaks, construct an enclosure. Dike or digging for storage, sealing drainage pipes, covering with foam to suppress evaporation, using explosion-proof pumps to transfer to tank trucks or special collectors, recycling or transporting to waste disposal sites for disposal.
