Structure of Cobalt(II) fluoride (CAS NO.10026-17-2):

Cobalt(II) fluoride Uses

 Cobalt(II) fluoride (CAS NO.10026-17-2) is available in most volumes in an ultra high purity composition. It can be used as a catalyst to alloy metals and also used for optical deposition, of which it tremendously improves optical quality. High purity compositions can improve optical qualities and its usefulness as a standard. The compound may be used in dental care, since fluoride is also used in dental care.

Cobalt(II) fluoride Production

 The anhydrous fluoride can be extracted from this by dehydration.Its tetrahydrate is formed by dissolving cobalt(II) in hydrofluoric acid. Other synthesis can occur at higher temperatures. Cobalt(II) fluoride (CAS NO.10026-17-2) can be prepared from Cobalt(II) oxide or anhydrous Cobalt(II) chloride in a stream of hydrogen fluoride:
CoCl2 + 2HF → CoF2 + 2HCl
CoO + 2HF → CoF2 + 2H2
 To analysis this compound, Cobalt (II) fluoride can be dissolved in nitric acid and then the solution is diluted with water until appropriate concentration for AA or ICP spectrophotometry for the cobalt.

Cobalt(II) fluoride Specification

 Cobalt(II) fluoride ,its cas register number is 10026-17-2. It also can be called Cobalt difluoride and Cobaltous fluoride .It is a pink crystalline solid compound. It has been shown that at 500 o C fluorine will combine with cobalt producing a mixture of CoF2 and CoF3.
 It is hazardous,so the first aid measures and others should be known. Such as: When on the skin: first,should flush skin with plenty of water immediately for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing. Secondly,Get medical aid. Or in the eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Then get medical aid soon. While ,it's Inhaled: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately.Give artificial respiration while not breathing. When breathing is difficult, give oxygen. And as soon as to get medical aid. Then you have the ingesting of the product : Do not induce vomiting.If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water,and get medical aid immediately.
In addition, Cobalt(II) fluoride (CAS NO.10026-17-2) is moisture sensitive. It is not compatible with acids, glass, and you must not take it with excess heat and incompatible materials and not be exposured to moist air or water.And also prevent it to broken down into hazardous decomposition products: hydrogen fluoride gas, oxides of cobalt.
