Characterization of a partially reduced tin(IV) oxide and of its cation exchange properties

A novel type of tin oxide and its cation exchange properties are described. The preparation of the oxide is rather unusual and consists in the precipitation of SnO·xH2O in the presence of sodium nitroprusside and its digestion in the presence of sodium nitrite. The final product is a partially reduced tin dioxide (PRTD) with one out of eight atoms of metal in the lower oxidation state of +2 and a great part of the bound water hydrogen replaced by sodium. Usual applications of commercially available tin dioxide exchangers can be extended to PRTD with remarkable advantages.
