Q: What is Sodium sulfide crystal?
A: The chemical formula of sodium sulfide crystal is Na2S·9H2O, and the formula weight is 240.18. It is granular, colorless crystal, white transparent or slightly blue. It is soluble in water and ethanol. The solution is alkaline and corrosive after hydrolysis. When in contact with skin or cutin, it can soften and dissolve and make hair fall off. It is soluble in crystal water at 50°C. It turns yellow when exposed to light, and can be oxidized to sodium thiosulfate in air. Sodium polysulfide is generated after putting sulfur in aqueous solution.
Q: What is Sodium sulfide crystal used for?
A: Sodium sulfide crystal is used in the preparation of sulfur dyes, leather depilatory agents, and as a reducing agent in the organic chemical industry. The cooking agent in the paper industry is also widely used in the pigment, rubber and other industries. Calcined with sodium sulfate mixed with carbon, sodium sulfate can be reduced to form sodium sulfide. It was found that the oxidation product of crystalline sodium sulfide should be a mixture of elemental sulfur, sodium polysulfide, sodium sulfite, and sodium sulfate through experiments. In the experiment, the content of partial oxidation products is relatively small, so it is easy to be ignored by everyone.
Q: Is Sodium sulfide toxic?
A: Sodium sulfide is corrosive and toxic, and it is easily oxidized in the air to form sodium thiosulfate. After sodium sulfide deliquesces in the air, it will be carbonized and deteriorated, continuously releasing hydrogen sulfide gas, which will also have a toxic effect on the human body. Sodium sulfide is also known as stinky alkali, stinky soda, yellow alkali, and alkali sulfide. Sodium sulfide is an inorganic compound, and pure sodium sulfide is a colorless crystalline powder. Strong hygroscopicity, easily soluble in water. The aqueous solution has a strong alkaline reaction and will cause burns when it touches the skin and hair.
