Effect of zinc on the carbothermal reduction of barite

Author(s): Jyotsna Kumar

Present paper discusses about the effect of zinc powder on the yield of water soluble barium sulphide, obtained after the carbothermal reduction of mixture of snow white barite with zinc powder in different optimum ratio. Experimental results show that low proportion of zinc powder enhances the yields of barium sulphidethus attaining better utilization of natural resource and contributing positively towards national economy.
