Strontium sulfate (SrSO4) is an inorganic chemical compound, the sulfate salt of strontium.
It is found in nature as the mineral celestine.
Boiling strontium sulfate with a soluble carbonate salt, like potassium carbonate will also give strontium carbonate.
Strontium sulfate is a white solid, practically insoluble in water and most solvents.
Strontium sulfate is sold by various chemical suppliers. Can also be bought online.
Alternatively, one can add sulfuric acid to strontium hydroxide or carbonate, which causes strontium sulfate to form.
- Make strontium carbonate
- Mineral collecting
Strontium sulfate has low toxicity and doesn't require special handling.
In closed bottles.
No special disposal is required, though it's better to try to recycle the compound if possible.
