Calcium arsenate (7778-44-1) is an extremely poisonous chemical compound. It is highly soluble in water.


Calcium arsenate (7778-44-1) is used extensively as an insecticide and as a fungicide.


Calcium arsenate (7778-44-1) is produced by the reaction of calcium chloride, calcium hydroxide, and sodium arsenate or lime and arsenic acid:
 2CaCl2 + Ca(OH)2 + 2Na2HAsO4 → Ca3(AsO4)2 + 4NaCl + 2H2O

Toxicity Data With Reference

Calcium arsenate (7778-44-1) is more toxic than lead arsenate.
