Stannous Chloride Dihydrate may be substituted effectively in numerous applications for Stannous Chloride Anhydrous. Product selection is contingent upon availability, price, and the purity of material. Nevertheless, the dihydrate generally is acknowledged to be more difficult to handle because of its low melting point. Although manufacturing techniques are critical to product quality, the dihydrate normally is purer with a higher stannous/stannic ratio. Reagent grade dihydrate was the only type approved in the Federal Registry for food applications. Its value as an antioxidant and as a corrosion inhibitor contributed to the premium price, which it commands.
