|Product name: ||Sodium Nitrate|
|Molecular Formula: ||NNaO3 |
|Molecular Structure: |
|CAS No.: ||7631-99-4|
Sodium Nitrate is a white fine crystal. It is bitter and salty. Soluble in water and liquid ammonia, slightly soluble in glycerin and ethanol, and easily deliquescent. Especially when it contains a very small amount of sodium chloride impurities, the deliquescent of sodium nitrate is greatly increased.
In the enamel industry, sodium nitrate can be used as a flux, an oxidant, and a raw material for formulating tantalum powder. It can be used as a decolorizer, defoamer, clarifier and oxidation flux for various glass and products in the glass industry. It can be used as a decolorizing agent for molten caustic soda in the inorganic industry and for the manufacture of other nitrates. It can be used as a coloring agent for meat processing in the food industry to prevent meat from deteriorating and to impart a flavoring effect. It can be used as a quick-acting fertilizer for acidic soils in the fertilizer industry, especially for root crops such as sugar beets and radishes. It can be used as a raw material for the production of picric acid and dyes in the dye industry. It can be used as a heat treatment agent for steel making and aluminum alloy in the metallurgical industry. It can be used as a metal cleaning agent and a ferrous metal bluing agent in the machine industry. It is used as a medium for penicillin in the pharmaceutical industry. It can be used as a combustion improver for tobacco in the cigarette industry.
