Sodium Sulfide is a yellow solid compound in flaky shape which can be found in anhydrous and hydrate forms. Sodium Sulfide with chemical formula of Na2S is soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohols. It can be easily oxidized when exposed to air. It has a distinct smell similar to rotten eggs. Sodium Sulfide is widely used in as flocculants, coloration agent and tanneries processes, oxygen scavenger in water treatment process, toning agent in photography of photographs, desulfurization agent in textile industry and even oil recovery operations.
Due to increasing demands for clean water, the market growth of Sodium sulfide is estimated to be in a rising trend around the world.
Na2S is majorly produced by chemical reduction of Sodium Sulfide.
Na2SO4 + 2C → Na2S + 2CO2
In addition, Na2S also can be prepared by sulfur reduction along with sodium in ammonia in small scales.
2Na + S → Na2S
Store in a dry and dark location, avoid exposure to direct sun light. Max. storage temperature 40°C
Sodium sulfide is predominately kraft process in the pulp and paper industry. Other applications can include use in water treatment, chemical photography, textile and leather industry and as chemical intermediate in a wide variety of industrial processes.
Sodium Sulfide 60% Flakes is classified as a dangerous product. It is corrosive to metals and contact with the skin and eyes can cause burns. It is toxic if swallowed and is very toxic to aquatic life. Contact with acids must be avoided. In contact with acids, the toxic gas Hydrogen Sulfide (H₂S) can be released.
