Calcium Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

softish silver-white metal

Chemical Properties

Calcium is a silvery-white metal when freshly cut, which tarnishes to a blue-gray color in air. It can also be found as a powder.


Reducing agent for production of less common metals; alloying agent to increase strength and corrosion resistance in lead, to improve mechanical and electrical properties in aluminum; refining agent to remove bismuth from lead. In metallurgy as scavenger to deoxidize, desulfurize and degas steel and cast iron; to control non-metallic inclusions in steel; to promote uniform microstructure in gray iron. As anode material in thermal batteries; as "getter" for oxygen and nitrogen.


Calcium is used as a deoxidizer for copper,steel, and beryllium in metallurgy; to hardenlead for bearing; and in making alloys.


Alkaline-earth element of atomic number 20, group IIA of the periodic table. Aw 40.08. Valence 2. Six stable isotopes.

General Description

A silvery, soft metal that turns grayish white on exposure to air. Used in metallurgy.

Air & Water Reactions

Pyrophoric ignites in air when finely divided, then burns with crimson flame [Merck 11th ed. 1989]. Calcium rapidly decomposes in water, the heat of reaction is sufficient that hydrolysis released hydrogen may ignite [Lab. Gov. Chemist 1966].

Reactivity Profile

Boron trifluoride reacts with incandescence when heated with alkali metals or alkaline earth metals except magnesium [Merck 11th ed. 1989]. Calcium reacts violently with acids [Lab. Govt. Chemist 1965]. Finely divided Calcium burns spontaneously in chlorine at elevated temperatures [Mellor 3:637, 638, 651 1946-47]. Finely divided or massive Calcium burns spontaneously in fluorine at ordinary temperatures. Calcium is incompatible with metal oxides, alkali metal hydroxides, chlorine fluorides, dinitrogen tetraoxide, and sulfur(with sulfur reacts explosively when ignited) [Bretherick, 5th Ed., 1995].


Evolves hydrogen with moisture. Flammable in finely divided state. Fire and explosion hazard when heated or on contact with strong oxidizing agents.

Health Hazard

Contact of dusts with skin or eyes can causeburns. It reacts with moisture on skin to formcaustic hydroxide, which may cause sucha burn. Fumes from burning calcium are astrong irritant to the eyes, skin, and mucousmembranes.

Health Hazard

Contact with eyes or skin produces caustic burns.

Fire Hazard

Produce flammable gases on contact with water. May ignite on contact with water or moist air. Some react vigorously or explosively on contact with water. May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Some are transported in highly flammable liquids. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.

Potential Exposure

Calcium is used as a raw material for aluminum, copper, and lead alloys.


No studies on the carcinogenicity of elemental calcium were noted. The carcinogenicity of calcium chromate is attributed solely to intracellular soluble chromium.

Purification Methods

Clean the metal by washing it with ether to remove adhering paraffin, file the surface in an argon-filled glove box, and wash it with ethanol containing 2% of conc HCl. Then wash it with dry ethanol, dry it in a vacuum and store it under pure argon [Addison et al. J Chem Soc 3868 1962].


Forms hydrogen gas on contact with air; finely divided material or dust may ignite spontaneously. A strong reducing agent; reacts violently with water, acids, strong oxidizers (such as chlorine, bromine, and fluorine), alkaline carbonates, dinitrogen tetroxide; halogenated hydrocarbons; lead chloride, halogens, alkaline hydroxides, oxygen, silicon, sulfur, chlorine, fluorine, chlorine trifluoride, and many other substances. Reacts with water to produce flammable hydrogen gas
