Chromium Oxide Powder

Applications of Cr2O3 such as catalyst supporter, green pigment and protective coating, have been achieved. Cr2O3- based catalysts have been studied for various petrochemical and environmental applications. Supported chromium oxide catalysts have found some industrial applications including polymerization of ethylene, dehydrogenation of paraffins and selective oxidation of alcohols. However, the applications of chromium oxides in sensors have not been found in a literature survey. Exploring new applications of these useful materials is still a challenge to researchers. Over the past decade, it has been proved that onedimensional (1D) inorganic nanostructures exhibit distinct properties from their counterpart bulk materials due to their high surface area, small size and low dimensionality. Because nanomaterials can exhibit solution processability as well as size-dependent physical and chemical properties, the ability to synthesize high-quality chromium oxide nanocrystals would create a new opportunity to facilitate the applications of chromium oxides.

Chromium oxide is the inorganic compound of the recipe Cr2O3. It is one of the main oxides of chromium and is utilized as a shade. In nature, it happens as an uncommon mineral eskolaite. Due to its extensive strength, chromium is normally utilized in color and was initially called Viridian. It is utilized as a part of paints, inks, and glasses. It is the colorant in “chrome green” and “institutional green.” Chromium oxide is the antecedent to the attractive shade chromium dioxide, as indicated by the accompanying response: Cr2O3 + 3 CrO3 → 5 CrO2 + O2. It is one of the materials that are utilized when cleaning the edges of blades on a bit of cowhide (additionally called stropping).
