Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) Cost

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) is an industrial chemical. Sodium Isobutyl Xanthate is produced industrially by reacting an alcohol with carbon disulfide and alkali-like sodium hydroxide. SIPX is a powdered white to yellowish deliquescent substance. SIPX pellets range in hue from yellow to green. SIPX has a strong odor when powdered. SIPX pellets have a sulfur-like smell.

 

What are the hazardous effects of Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX)?

It can irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract is possible. Skin contact irritates. Contact with wet skin releases carbon disulfide. Carbon disulfide may be absorbed via the skin, causing harm.

 

What precautionary measures should be taken in handling Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX)?

What is the pH of Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX)?

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) is expected to have a pH range of 7.5 to 8.5, reflecting mineral processing conditions and avoiding oxidation via water covers.

 

Is Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) an Electrolyte compound?

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) has a sodium component which is an electrolyte.

 

Can Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) go down the drain?

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) can pose hazards to human life and the environment. It has to be kept out of the sewer, drains, and natural waterways. Chemicals dumped into rivers may remain for days, hydrolyzing slowly in a more neutral environment. Due to its ionic nature, it is unlikely to bioaccumulate. For proper discarding, it should be disposed of by thermal treatment or incineration at approved facilities.

 

Is Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) Acidic or Basic?

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) is a chemical base that breaks down in acid. When subjected to acidic circumstances, sodium isopropyl xanthate (SIPX) is hydrolytically unstable, quickly converting to isopropyl alcohol, carbon disulfide, and sodium hydroxide, and therefore will not survive in the acidic environment of tailings dams.

 

How is Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate (SIPX) different from Sodium Isobutyl Xanthate?

Sodium Isobutyl Xanthate (SIBX) has light yellow crystals or powder in its purest form. It is also a viable option. SIBX is a hygroscopic substance, which means it absorbs moisture from the air while still being solid. SIBX emits a rotten cabbage-like carbon disulfide stench. SIBX may sometimes emit a sulfurous odor. SIBX is a water-soluble chemical that may form insoluble compounds when combined with metallic ions.
