Chemical Properties:

  1. Sodium formate is a white powder, with water absorption and a slight odor of formic acid. Sodium formate is dissolved in water and glycerol, slightly soluble in ethanol and insoluble in ether.
  2. white crystals


  1. Sodium formate is mainly for the production of formic acid, oxalic acid and insurance powder and so on.
  2. Sodium formate is used as the reagent for the determination of phosphorus and arsenic, disinfectant and mordant.
  3. Sodium formate is used as preservatives, with diuretic effect. Sodium formate is mutatis mutandis in EEC countries, but the British are not allowed to use.
  4. Sodium formate is used as intermediates in the production of formic acid and oxalic acid, but also for the production of dimethyl formamide, also used in medicine, printing and dyeing industry. Sodium formate is also heavy metal precipitant.
  5. Sodium formate is used as alkyd paints, plasticizers, high explosives, acid-resistant materials, aviation lubricants, additives of adhesives.
  6. Sodium formate is used for precipitating noble metal, may form trivalent metal complex ions in the solution. With buffer effect, it can be used for correcting pH value of strong mineral acids to be higher. Sodium formate is precipitant of heavy metal.
  7. Sodium formate is used in several fabric dyeing and printing processes. Sodium formate is also used as a buffering agent for strong mineral acids to increase their pH, and as a food additive ( E237 ) .
  8. Precipitant for noble metals.
  9. In dyeing and printing fabrics; also In animal chemistry as a precipitant for the “noble” metals. Solubilizes trivalent metal ions in solution by forming complex ions. Buffering action adjusts the pH of strong mineral acids to higher values.
