Zinc Nitrate Chemical Formula

Zinc Nitrate is an inorganic colorless, deliquescent crystals obtained by dissolving zinc in nitric acid. Molar mass of the compound is 189.36 g/mol in the anhydrous state, and 297.49 g/mol in hexahydrate structure. It is soluble in water and explodes when exposed to prolonged fire or heat. It decomposes at the boiling state of 125 °C and gets hexahydrate structure. It is used in the synthesis of coordination polymers and also act as catalyst in the manufacture of chemicals, medicines and dyes. Molecular formula of Zinc Nitrate is Zn(NO3)2
