Ammonium Paratungstate Tetrahydrate

Ammonium paratungstate tetrahydrate, or APT·4H2O, is an important intermediate product in the production of tungsten powder. It has been reported that it is a key process to crystallize APT·4H2O from an aqueous solution of ammonium tungstate in the current preparation method of tungsten powder.

According to the literatures, ammonium paratungstate tetrahydrate is an intermediate for the production of metal tungsten, tungsten-containing catalysts or hard materials based on tungsten (such as tungsten carbide) or sputtering targets. Generally, sputtering target is fabricated using high-purity APT as a raw material. And high-purity APT can be prepared by the following steps: Acid or alkali of tungsten-containing concentrate or tungsten waste is melted and then purified. The purification stage includes precipitation process and liquid-liquid extraction. The purified solution is usually concentrated by evaporation to finally crystallize APT. In other words, APT crystals are available by processing ammonium paratungstate tetrahydrate through a certain production process.
