Hexahydrate is colorless hexagonal crystal or white crystalline powder. Soluble in water, methanol, ethanol. Slightly soluble in acetone. Insoluble in ether. There is deliquescence. Heated to 180 ° C to lose crystal water and become anhydrous. poisonous!
By hydrobromic acid and strontium carbonate in the presence of reducing agents in the reaction.
It is used as sedative, tranquilizer and analytical reagent in medicine.
Substances containing strontium in oysters include Strontium Bromide (aqueous alkaline solution) and strontium lactate. Strontium Bromide is effective for gastroduodenal ulcers and has achieved the purpose of strengthening the stomach. Strontium lactate has the effect of treating convulsions (using strontium lactate to guide researchers to speculate that strontium increases the activity of osteoblasts). It is speculated that strontium has feedback regulation to control human sympathetic nerves and The excitatory effect of parasympathetic nerves, so oysters can also treat neurological disorders.
