Product Description

Sodium Nitrite

Application Notes

Sodium nitrite is used in many industrial processes, in meat curing, coloring, and preserving, and as a reagent in analytical chemistry. It is used therapeutically as an antidote in cyanide poisoning. The compound is toxic and mutagenic and will react in vivo with secondary or tertiary amines thereby producing highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Key Applications

Strong oxidizer
