What is Sodium Hydrosulfide (NaHS) different from Sodium Ethyl Xanthate?

SEX, or sodium ethyl xanthate, is a yellowish powder or pellet that is water-soluble. It is a sodium salt of a xanthate based on C2 alkyl ethyl alcohol. Sodium ethyl xanthate is particularly useful in froth flotation, where it separates hydrophobic and hydrophilic materials. This is a crucial component in the mining operation industry for recovering sulfide ores. This method reduces recovering low-grade ores and may save mining firms processing costs for ores like copper.
