Section 16: Other Information

References: Not available.

Other Special Considerations:

The CAS number used (13435-46-6) is actually for C6-H2-Cl2-O4 (Barium Chloranilate anhydrous) which is TSCA

listed. There is a CAS number for C6-H2-Cl2-O4.3H2O (Barium Chloranilate trihydrate) which is not TSCA listed. It is

32458-20-1. However, it seems to be an industry wide standard to use the CAS number for Barium Chloranilate

anhydrous to identify Barium Chloranilate trihydrate.
