barium nitrate solution, Ba(NO3)2, is a salt of barium and the nitrate ion. It has many uses in the vacuum tube industry and the manufacture of other barium compounds. It is also used in green fireworks and pyrotechnics, where it helps to create the green flames.

Known as “green fire” or a “green flame”, barium nitrate is one of the most commonly used pyrotechnic substances in fireworks, alongside sodium chloride, which produces yellow flames, and copper chloride, which burns blue. The green color of barium nitrate comes from the fact that its metal ions emit visible light at a wavelength corresponding to the colour green.

The military also has a variety of uses for barium nitrate, including signal flares and tracer bullets that help to pinpoint a soldier’s location. This is accomplished by putting a small pyrotechnic charge directly at the end of such ammunition. When fired, it ignites the area in which it is placed to provide a very clear view of where the bullet will go.

It is also used to make certain types of glass. Its oxygen content helps to keep the glass clear and free of discoloration.
