What is Sodium Chloride?

Sodium Chloride (NaCl), or as it is more commonly known €“ salt, is an ionic compound that is produced mainly by evaporation of sea water or brine to leave behind the 1:1 compound. It is also sourced through mining of rock salt and also as a by-product of Potassium mining. It is considered to be the source of many of the chemicals in production throughout the world today.

Sodium Chloride is a non-hazardous substance, however due care should be taken whenever handling chemical substances to reduce any risk involved.

Sodium Chloride is not compatible with non-oxidising agents, such as Sodium Hypochlorite.

What is Sodium Chloride Used For?

Sodium Chloride has many numbers of uses that many of us use in everyday life:

  • Sodium Chloride is used as a preservative for meat products as bacteria cannot exist in a salty environment because they are affected by osmosis. NaCl is also used as a condiment for food to enhance the flavouring.
  • NaCl is used to de-ice roads in wintery conditions. The compound raises the freezing temperature of water so that the road is not coated in ice, making it safer to drive and walk on.
  • Sodium Chloride is the basis of many other chemicals. For example, electrolysis of NaCl results in the production of Hyrdogen, Chlorine & Sodium Hydroxide.
  • NaCl is used in some types of fire extinguishers in the event that a combustible metal fire takes place.
  •  NaCl is also soluble in water and can be used in this state for many things such as an anti-bacterial mouthwash recommended by dentists in the event of infection.
