Proper handling of Sodium Persulfate

Proper handling and storage of Sodium Persulfate must be fully observed, and appropriate personal protective equipment must be worn. Proper storage and disposal of Sodium Persulfate need to be taken into consideration to avoid any unwanted effects.

 

What will happen if Sodium Persulfate is heated?

When Sodium Persulfate is heated, it decomposes at 180 °C (356 °F; 453 K). The salt is an oxidant and reacts with organic materials such as paper to create flammable combinations. When powerful reducing agents such as magnesium are combined, explosive compositions may result.

 

Is Sodium Persulfate soluble compound?

It is the sodium salt of the oxidizing agent peroxydisulfuric acid, H2S2O8. It is a white crystalline substance that dissolves in water. The solubility of sodium sulfate in water and aqueous methanol was investigated at temperatures ranging from 10 to 50 degrees centigrade. Sodium sulfate was virtually insoluble in pure methanol.

What is the pH of Sodium Persulfate?

The pH level of Sodium Persulfate ranges from 5.6 to 8 when activated by heat.

 

Is Sodium Persulfate an Electrolyte compound?

Sodium Persulfate is a powerful electrolyte through its sodium component. It is an electrolyte replenisher that is used in isosmotic solutions to maintain proper electrolyte balance during dosing.

 

Can Sodium Persulfate go down the drain?

Sodium Persulfate can pose hazards to human life and the environment. It has to be kept out of the sewer, drains, and natural waterways. For proper discarding, it should be disposed of by thermal treatment or incineration at approved facilities.

 

Is Sodium Persulfate Acidic or Basic?

Sodium Persulfate is an acid. The inorganic chemical sodium persulfate has the formula Na2S2O8. Peroxydisulfuric acid is the sodium salt of H2S2O8. It is an oxidizing agent.

 

How is Sodium Persulfate different from Potasium Persulfate?

The inorganic chemical potassium persulfate has the formula K2S2O8. Also known as potassium peroxydisulfate or KPS, it is a white substance that dissolves poorly in cold water but readily in warm water. This salt is a very strong oxidant that is often used to induce polymerizations.
