What is the name of ZnCO3?

ZnCO3 is a white crystal at room temperature. It is insoluable in water. • ZnCO3 = ZnO + CO2. • ZnSO4 + Li2CO3 = ZnCO3 ↓ + Li2SO4. • ZnCO3 + 2 HNO3 = Zn(NO3)2 + CO2 + H2O.

Similarly, you may ask, what is the chemical formula for zinc carbonate and why?

ZINC monocarbonate
PubChem CID:19005
Chemical Names:ZINC CARBONATE; Zincspar; Carbonic acid, zinc salt (1:1); 3486-35-9; Zinc monocarbonate; Natural smithsonite More
Molecular Formula:ZnCO3 or CO3Zn
Molecular Weight:125.388 g/mol

What is zinc carbonate made out of?

Zinc carbonate is a white, insoluble, zinc salt with chemical formula ZnCO3. With it, most simple zinc salts can be made by reaction with the corresponding proportions of sulfate. Zinc carbonate occurs in nature as the mineral Smithsonite aka zinc spar.

How is zinc carbonate formed?

Zinc carbonate can be made by reacting zinc sulfate or any other water soluble zinc(II) salt with sodium carbonate or sodium bicarbonate. It can also be made by the reaction of zincates with carbon dioxide. The resulting precipitate can then be filtered and dried, then stored in an environment free of acidic vapors.
