Chemical Description

  • Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) is a yellow-green liquid that can accelerate the burning of organic substances.
  • It is widely used in various industries, including paper manufacturing, water purification, wood pulp bleaching, textiles, fats and oils, as a disinfectant, and in many other fields
  • In organic synthesis, sodium chlorite is often used to convert aldehydes to carboxylic acids and alkyl furans to 4-oxo-2-alkenoic acids.
  • Moreover, when combined with an acid such as citric acid, acidified sodium chlorite can be used to sanitize surfaces and rinse a variety of foods.
  • In the military, sodium chlorite can be used to combat contaminants such as harmless microbes and food pathogens.
  • Sodium chlorite is a kind of efficient bleacher and bactericide. It is used to bleach various fibers including cotton, linen, mulberry, reed, viscose fiber and so on. Additionally, it can bleach sugar, flour, starch, ointment, wax, oil, and more.
  • Sodium chlorite also serves as a leather depilator, a surface treatment for certain metals, and a water and sewage treatment solution.
  • It can even purify trace amounts of nitric oxide in coke oven gas.
  • Sodium chlorite may be used in the synthesis of chlorine dioxide and as a hydroxylating agent for the hydroxylation of androstenedione (steroid).
  • Sodium chlorite is used in the in situ generation of chlorine dioxide for stripping of textiles, bleaching, pulp and paper industries. It acts as a disinfectant in water treatment plants and as a preservative in eye drops.
  • It is also used in contact lens cleaning solutions and for sanitizing air ducts. It is associated with zinc chloride and used as a component in therapeutic rinses, toothpastes, mouth sprays and gels.
  • It is utilized for the synthesis of 4-oxo-2-alkenoic acids from alkyl furans. Further, it is involved as a reagent in Pinnick oxidation reaction to prepare carboxylic acid from aldehydes.
  • Sodium chlorite appears as a yellow-green liquid. Difficult to burn, but accelerates the burning of organic substances. Forms explosive mixtures with certain combustible materials. May explode under prolonged exposure to heat or fire. Used in water purification, to bleach wood pulp, textile, fats, oils; and for many other uses.
