Important compounds derived from zinc are listed below:
Zinc sulfate, ZnSO4
Zinc sulfide, ZnS
With specific ores zinc compounds manufactured by oxidation and reduction reactions.Zinc sulfate ZnSO4 is formed by reacting zinc with sulfuric acid.
Process flowsheeting of zinc compounds production
Manufacturing from barite ore: barium sulfide is the main constitutes in barite ore, it is reacted with carbon to form BaS and it is reacted with zinc sulfate to form zinc sulfide
