  • Sodium Amyl Xanthate is the most powerful collector among the xanthates.
  • It is extensively used in the flotation process of sulfide ores. It works as an excellent collector for the flotation of Copper Nickel sulfide ores as well as gold associated with pyrite.
  • It is also used in the flotation process of non ferrous metal minerals.
  • It is used in various hydrometallurgical processes.
  • It is also used as a vulcanisation accelerator for the rubber industry.
