Quick Reference

A salt formed in solution by dissolving zinc or zinc oxide in alkali. The formula is often written ZnO22− although in aqueous solution the ions present are probably complex ions in which the Zn2+ is coordinated to OH ions. ZnO22− ions may exist in molten sodium zincate, but most solid ‘zincates’ are mixed oxides.
