Clarification needed[edit]

The article should clarify the relations between CrO3, Cr2O3, chromic oxide, chromium trioxide, and chromium (III) oxide anhydride. Rl 16:36, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

  • So it should! For a start, it shouldn't be called Chromia, a name for which I can't find any evidence of it's use... Physchim62 20:55, 21 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Chromia seems to refer to chromic oxide, as alumina refers to aluminum oxide or silica to silicon dioxide. Apparently depends on the scientific community. – Thanks for working on this! Rl 21:36, 21 August 2005 (UTC)
  • Sorry for the sloppy start, and thanks for cleaning it up. I’ll be more careful next time when starting an article on a chemical compound. DV8 2XL


There isn't anything in this article about it's use, wouldn't that be an important addition to start with? --weh? i need an nswer. tsk.Sfxsigma 06:31, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

I think that Cr2O3 is what stains motorcycle exhaust headers. Preventing it's formation on chrome plating at high temperature or removing it while retaining a shiny chrome plate surface would be a useful thing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:47, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Infobox Color?[edit]

Since this is the only article for Chrome Green as a pigment, where is the Infobox Color that would say what color it is? And where does such information come from? Some of the other instances of Infobox Color do not reference the data. Is there a way of determining which articles have a particular Infobox (wikipedia search does not find them)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:02, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Is there an inorganic chemist in the house?[edit]

Both this and the CrCl3 article contain(ed) some questionable uncited statements. It is not my line, and I am busy, but if no one else wants to tackle it, I can supplement the text with cited material.JonRichfield (talk) 14:56, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
