Aluminum Sulfide is slightly yellow crystalline particles or powder,which smell like rotten egg. If mixed with extra aluminum, it show grey. Aluminum powder and sulfur are raw materials. Aluminum(III) sulfide would react with water.
Synonyms: aluminum(III) sulfide, aluminum trisulfide, aluminum iii sulfide powder
|CAS No.: 1302-81-4||EINECS No.: 215-109-0|
|Molecular Formula: Al2S3||Molecular Weight:150.16|
|Melting Point:1100℃||Boiling Point:1500℃|
When come to moisture or water, aluminum(III) sulfide form hydrogen sulfide and aluminum hydroxide. When heating, it erode porcelain and could be restored by iron and hydrocarbon to get aluminum metal. When compounded with SO2, sulphur and aluminum sulphate got.
Aluminum(III) sulfide should be sealed in container in dry, cool, ventilate place. It should avoid oxides, moisture, water, acids.
