zinc nitrate hexahydrate is an inorganic chemical compound with the formula Zn(NO3)2. It appears as off-white, hygroscopic, crystalline salt which is highly deliquescent and soluble in water at ambient conditions. It is also known as Celloxan, Zinc Dinitrate Hexahydrate, or zinc nitrate (lab grade). It is an oxidizing agent and it reacts with bases to form compounds of the zinc-nitrogen type and with acids to produce oxides. It is also used in the synthesis of coordination polymers and as a dye mordant.

It is very corrosive, and it may cause irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory tract. Long-term contact with it may result in dermatitis. Its dust can irritate the skin, and it should be handled with care. Its thermal decomposition when heated releases toxic oxides of nitrogen and zinc. It can also accelerate the burning of other combustible substances.

It is a very potent oxidizing agent and it may cause severe burns. It is soluble in water and alcohol at ambient temperatures. It is incompatible with powdered metals, cyanides, sodium hypophosphite, stannous chloride, thiocyanates, flammable materials, and strong reducing agents. It is sensitive to moisture and should be stored in a cool, ventilated warehouse. It should be kept away from other combustible materials because it can increase the fire intensity when mixed with them. It can release toxic fumes when it comes in contact with oxidizing materials such as sulfur, phosphorus, copper, and carbon. It can also form a hazard when exposed to ultraviolet light.
