DESCRIPTION

Sodium Chlorite DESCRIPTION


Basic properties

Sodium chlorite appears as a white crystalline powder with a certain amount of water absorption. Sodium chlorite is soluble in water (solubility: 34% at 5℃, 46% at 30℃). Sodium chlorite anhydrous matter is heated to 350T is not decomposed, the general product contains water, heated to 180 ~ 200℃ decomposition. Its alkaline aqueous solution is stable to light, acidic aqueous solution under the influence of light will produce explosive decomposition, and release chlorine dioxide. Sodium chlorite is a strong oxidant, its oxidation capacity is 4 ~ 5 times of bleaching powder.


Production

Dissolving sodium chlorate in water to form a solution, adding chlorine dioxide generator, adding the mixture of sulfur dioxide and air and sulfuric acid to chlorine dioxide generator for reaction respectively, the chlorine dioxide gas generated and hydrogen peroxide, liquid caustic soda for reaction, the formation of sodium chlorite solution. Arsenic remover and heavy metal remover were added to the solution to purify the solution. The solution after cooling crystallization, filtration, drying, can become a solid sodium chlorite product.


Security

As with many oxidants, sodium chlorite should be protected from accidental contamination by organic materials and from the formation of explosive mixtures. The chemical is stable in its pure form and will not explode on impact unless there is an organic contaminant, such as hitting the chemical on a cutting board with a greasy hammer. If used in combination with reducing agents such as powdered sugar, sulphur or red phosphorus, it can also easily catch fire from friction.


Toxicity

Sodium chlorite is a strong oxidant and is therefore expected to cause clinical symptoms similar to sodium chlorite: methemoglobinemia, hemolysis, and renal failure. One dose of 10-15 grams of sodium chlorate can be fatal. The EPA has set the maximum level of chlorite contamination in drinking water at 1 mg (1 mg/L) per liter.


APPLICATION

Sodium Chlorite APPLICATION


Bleaching and Disinfection

The main applications of sodium chlorite are bleaching and disinfection. Sodium chlorite can be converted to chlorine dioxide, which is used in bleaching textiles and pulp, as well as disinfecting urban water treatment plants. Chlorine dioxide, produced from sodium chlorite, is approved by the FDA for food disinfection under certain conditions. Aqueous solutions of sodium chlorite have stable bleaching ability under acidic conditions such as citric acid, resulting in short-life acidified sodium chlorite (ASC) with strong decontamination properties. ASC can be used to clean hard surfaces that come in contact with food and to wash a variety of foods, including red meat, poultry, seafood, fruits and vegetables.


Personal Care

Sodium chlorite, combined with zinc chloride, is used as a mouthwash, toothpaste and gel, as a preservative in oral sprays, eye drops, and lens cleanser.


Chemical Reagent

In organic synthesis, sodium chlorite is often used as a reagent in Pinnick's oxidation reaction to oxidize aldehydes to carboxylic acids.

Sodium Chlorite Storage

Sodium chlorite should be stored in a cool, ventilated, dry warehouse, but can not be stored in the wood structure of the warehouse. Sodium chlorite should not be stored and transported with combustible, acid and reducing agent. Store sodium chlorite warehouse to pay attention to moisture, away from heat and fire. Sodium chlorite transportation process to prevent rain and sun, loading and unloading should be handled gently, to prevent violent collision. When the warehouse is on fire, it can be put out with water, sand and all kinds of fire extinguishers.
