Mono Calcium Phosphate ,the chemical formula is Ca (H2PO4)2.H2O, molecular weight of the body is 252.06, after dryed the product is white or slightly yellow micro powder or granules, the relative density of 2.22 (16 °C). Slightly hygroscopic, soluble in hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, slightly soluble in cold water, almost insoluble in ethanol. At 30 °C, 100 ml of water soluble MCP 1.8g. The aqueous solution was acidic, heating the aqueous solution can get calcium hydrogen phosphate. Lose crystal water at 109 °C and decomposed into calcium metaphosphate at 203°C.
Monocalcium Phosphate is used to supply mineral nutrition such as phosphorus (P) and calcium (Ca) for animal, which can be easily digested and absorbed. Extensively applied as additives of Phosphorous and Calcium in aquatic animals feed.Higher water solubility of MCP is required in aquatic animals feed.
