Description and uses: Ultra fine zinc powder (2 - 3 micron!) of high chemical purity.
To a first user of this product the powder may appear quite lumpy, thereby hiding its ultrafine nature. Fine powders tend of course to somewhat clump together and the powder of a fairly soft, reactive and quite pure metal like zinc is no exception. Very gently crushing the product on a smooth but hard surface and pestle, dispersion into a dry mix or dispersion into a liquid by means of vigorous stirring will cause any aggregates to completely break up.
In inorganic and organic chemistry zinc powder finds use as a powerful reducer, during which it oxidises to Zn (+II) which can be complexed (for separation purposes) with ammonia.
