Sodium Nitrite | NaNO2
Product Name: Sodium Nitrite
Molecular Formula: NaNO₂
Molecular Weight: 69.00
Product Form: Appearance is white or slightly yellowish, orthorhombic crystal or powder.
1. Slightly salty, deliquescent, strong moisture absorption, soluble in water and liquid ammonia, slightly soluble in methanol, ethanol, and ether.
2. Decompose when heated to above 320°C.
3. Sodium Nitrite mixed with organic matter and sulfur can cause combustion and explosion, and has oxidizing and reducing properties.
4. Sodium Nitrite is slowly oxidized to sodium nitrate in the air. When encountering weak acid, brown nitrous oxide gas is liberated.
