Cesium tungstate is colorless crystals, with strong hygroscopic, the phase transition occurs at 536 oc, transition from orthorhombic to hexagonal crystal. It is insoluble in water.
1.Usually it is slightly harmful to water. Cesium tungstate can be soluble in water and react acid and alkali which will result in pollution to environment.
2.Cesium tungstate has acute toxicity, it may cause irritant effect. It may cause inflammation if contact with skin and eyes.
Thus during the storage, it should be placed under normal temperature and pressure, avoid to get contact with water, acid and alkali. Ensure that it is placed in a cool, ventilated place to avoid accidental contact and result in harm.
Cesium tungstate is obtained by the reaction between CsCl and Ag2WO4.
