Description & Applications

Sodium formate, also designated as sodium methanoate, is the organic salt form of formic acid. It can be used for a wide range of applications in both laboratory and industrial settings. In research, sodium formate is used as a reagent for both arsenic and phosphorous. It can also act as a buffer when working with mineral acids. Beyond research applications, sodium formate is used as a preservative and a component of several heavy industrial materials, including adhesives, paints, explosives and certain high-grade lubricants. Formic acid can be extracted from sodium formate, and it also plays a role in the production of oxalic acid. It is used in the textiles industry to fix reactive dyes.

USE
Sodium Formate is used as a buffering agent for strong mineral acids to increase their pH, as a food additive, and as a de-icing agent. It is a versatile chemical used in many laboratory techniques such as crystallization, molecule-based material construction, and chemiluminescence. It has been shown to act as a signal for Salmonella invasion and acts as a free radical scavenger.
