Chemical Properties

Storage & Sensitivity
Ambient temperatures.
Soluble in ethanol, methanol, hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, hydrogen fluoride and ammonium chloride. Sparingly soluble in water.


Spectroscopy, IR window. Barium Fluoride is commonly used in spectroscopic components. It is transparent from the ultraviolet to the infrared, which favors to make optical components like lenses. It is also used as a viewport window for thermography and scintillator material for detection of X rays and gamma rays.


Hygroscopic. Incompatible with acids.
