Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
225.65 (189.62anhy)
Melting point
Storage & Sensitivity
Air Sensitive. Store under Argon. Ambient temperatures.
Soluble in dilute and concentrated hydrochloric acid, alcohol, ethyl acetate, glacial acetic acid, and sodium hydroxide solution. Decomposes in excess water.


Tin(II) chloride is used as a sensitizing agent in preparing glass and plastic for metalizing. It serves as a potent reducing agent. Other uses of stannous chloride are tin electroplating baths, corrosion inhibitors, polymers, thermoplastic elastomers, soldering flux, antioxidant, tanning agent and pharmaceuticals.


Hygroscopic, and absorbs moisture or water from air. Incompatible with metals, strong oxidizing agents, strong bases and bromine trifluoride.
