Is anhydrous sodium sulphate the same as anhydrous sodium sulphite?
Sodium Sulphate Anhydrous，white uniform fine granules or powder.
Odourless, salty and bitter.
Density 2.68g/cm. Melting point 884℃.
Soluble in water, solubility increases rapidly with the increase of temperature within 0-30.4℃. Soluble in glycerol, insoluble in ethanol.
The aqueous solution is neutral. When the aqueous solution is lower than 32.38℃, it will be crystallized and precipitated as a decahydrate.
Above 32.38℃, it starts to crystallize withanhydrous sodium sulphate.
Mainly used as a filler for dyes and auxiliaries to adjust the concentration of dyes and auxiliaries so that the standard concentration can be reached.
Can also be used as direct dyes, sulphide dyes, reduction dyes in dyeing cotton, direct acid dyes in dyeing silk and wool animal fibre retarder, can also be used as printing silk fabric refining when the base colour protection agent.
In the paper industry, it is used as a cooking agent in the manufacture of sulphate pulp. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used as an antidote for barium salt poisoning.
In addition, it is also used in the glass and construction industries.
Sodium sulfite anhydrous, white crystal powder, soluble in water (at 0℃, 12.54g/100ml water; at 80℃, 283g/100ml water), the highest solubility is about 28% at 33.4℃, the aqueous solution is alkaline, the PH value is about 9~9.5.
Slightly soluble in alcohol, insoluble in liquid chlorine, ammonia. It is easily oxidized to sodium sulphate in air, and decomposed to sodium sulphide at high temperature. CAS No. 7757-83-7.
Anhydrous sodium sulfite is used for film development.
