Uranium Trioxide Chemical Formula

Uranium Trioxide is a powdered compound appears in yellow-orange color. It is highly soluble in nature. It can be expressed using the chemical formula UO3. Uranyl oxide, uranium(VI) oxide, and uranic oxide are the other names of UO3. Solid Uranium trioxide is obtained by heating uranyl nitrate at 400 degree celcius. It is toxic when comes in contact with skin and inhaled.

Uranium Trioxide is a powdered compound appears in yellow-orange color. It is highly soluble in nature. It can be expressed using the chemical formula UO3. Uranyl oxide, uranium(VI) oxide, and uranic oxide are the other names of UO3. Solid Uranium trioxide is obtained by heating uranyl nitrate at 400 degree celcius. It is toxic when comes in contact with skin and inhaled.

Uranium Trioxide is slightly radioactive in nature and thus when comes in contact causes shortness of breath, coughing, acute arterial lesions, and changes in the chromosomes of white blood cells and gonads. It is one of the most dangerous compound which affects kidneys severely.
