Product Description

Zinc Chloride

Application Notes

Zinc chloride is a widely used reagent in various industrial processes. These include textile finishing, the etching of metals, the manufacture of parchment paper, and the preparation of galvanizing, soldering, and tinning fluxes. Zinc chloride is also used in organic chemical synthesis, such as in the formation of amines from azides. Zinc chloride is used in biochemistry and molecular biology research as a source of zinc ion. A study has been published on the zinc mediated inhibition of cAMP production in N18TG2 neuroblastoma cells.The use of zinc chloride in crystal studies of cytochrome c oxidase and of cytochrome c oxidoreductase has been described. Zinc chloride has been utilized to investigate the relationship of glutathione and glutathione synthesis rates to cellular toxicity.
