barium dichromate is a very useful oxidizing agent that is used for many purposes. It is also one of the easiest to produce compounds among the chromates. It is very effective in oxidizing alcohols. This is because the chromium in it is in the oxidation state of +6. It is a fine light yellow powder and is soluble in acids. It is non-flammable and should be stored in well ventilated places. It is also important to keep it away from any combustibles and reducing agents.

It is usually made by precipitating a solution of Barium chloride with Potassium dichromate. It can also be created by reacting barium hydroxide with sodium chromate. It has a density of 4.498 g / cm3. It is insoluble in water and is more soluble in acid solutions.

This compound is an essential ingredient in a number of pyrotechnic compositions. It is used as a pigment in ceramics, coloring glasses and fuses, and is also a corrosion inhibitor in the preparation of anti-corrosive agents. It can also be used in the production of safety matches and ignition control devices. It is also a good burn rate modifier in pyrotechnic compositions.

It is a mild oxidizing agent that allows the selective conversion of primary and secondary alcohols to their corresponding aldehydes. It is also used in the synthesis of a number of organic compounds. It is a useful reagent for the preparation of boron-doped tungsten carbide and erbium-doped potassium double tungstate crystals.
