Barium chlorate is a white crystalline solid also been found irritant and toxic. Barium chlorate use to be green or white in color. When it burns with the fuel this interesting compound can make really powerful spark and explosion. Sometimes we also call it "barium dichlorate"it appears as white solid. [1]


Barium chlorate is the chemical compound that formula by Ba(ClO3)2,it's more like a white crystalline solid of the chloric acid.[2]


The Barium Chlorate could be produce between barium chloride and sodium chlorate in a double replacement reaction,here is the formula:BaCl2 + 2 NaClO3 → Ba(ClO3)2 + 2 NaCl, and through the reaction it can cause strong yellow and green by the overpower.and the reaction for the boiling ammonium chlorate solution is 2 NH4ClO3 + BaCO3 + Q → Ba(ClO3)2 + 2 NH3 + H2O + CO2. And that the decomposition for the barium chlorate is Ba(ClO3)2 → BaCl2 + 3O2, basic on this way that barium chlorate is produce the chloric acid and insoluble barium chlorate precipitate Ba(ClO3)2 + H2SO4 → 2HClO3 + BaSO4.And it also the chemical that colorless and as white powder.[2]


It can use to make explosive and dyeing the stuffs,also can make the sources for the fire work,it has been widely use for industry and commercial.[2]



Fire Work the green compound has been popularity use for the made of the firework.And the Barium Chlorate has been use to make vivid green color in pyrotechnics,when you did the double decomposition for barium chloride and sodium chlorate can make it hard to be removed from the compounds.And if you want make a pure barium chlorate in the laboratory you can use ammonium chlorate stage: KClO3 and (NH4)2 SO4 evaporate this with alcohol.Many soft compounds can really make colorful compound with barium chlorate.
