synthesize zinc citrate - please help

Recommended Posts

hello dear members,
I am trying to make Zinc Hyrdoxide by electrolysis with Sodium bicarbonate and zinc rods in distilled water first and then I want to make zinc citrate by mixing zinc hyrdoxide and citric acid mixed with water.

Can you please tell me if this is correct procedure to make zinc citrate. If yes, then do I need boil the mixture of zinc hydroxide and citric acid to get zinc citrate? My goal is to consume small quantity of zinc citrate because I cant buy it now :(

I tried to google but couldn't find much help on either making zinc hyrdoxide and zinc citrate.

I do not have zinc salt to make zinc hydroxide that way.

You replies are appreciated. Thank you very much.
