Making Zinc Carbonate

Post  enviDan on Wed Feb 06, 2013 10:07 am

Hello I need to make Zinc Carbonate, does anyone know the chemical formula for making this. I've mixed sodium carbonate and zinc chloride but I dont think I got the solutions right. Anyone ever made this?

Zinc Carbonate Formula

Post  joemark on Mon Jul 01, 2013 1:36 am

Take the HCl as hydrochloric acid and warm it. Add Zn metal until no more dissolves.
Zn + 2HCl = ZnCl2 + H2
Filter to remove undissolved zin and you now have zinc chloride solution. Now dissolve the Na2CO3 in water and add to the ZnCl2 solution. A white precipitate of ZnCO3 forms.
ZnCl2 + Na2CO3 = ZnCO3 + 2 NaCl
Filter this off keeping the residue, then, most importantly, wash it in the filter with several lots of distilled water to move any excess Na2CO3 or ZnCl2 solution. Allow to dry
