AMMONIUM SULFITE Chemical Properties
AMMONIUM SULFITE Usage And Synthesis
Colorless to white crystals that are soluble in water (NH4)2S03H20 is used both as a reducing agent and in photography. This compound is a salt that can form from the reaction of ammonia and sulfur dioxide or hydrogen sulfide. This product is frequently found in the overhead of crude distillation units and can be quite corrosive to steel equipment. Chemical corrosion inhibitors are often used to control corrosion from ammonium sulfite and other ammonium salts
Ammonium sulfite is a colorless to yellow crystalline (sand-like or sugar-like) solid, normally sold or used in a 40% solution.
AMMONIUM SULFITE is a colorless crystalline solid. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment. AMMONIUM SULFITE is used in the manufacture of other chemicals, in medicine, and photography.
Air & Water Reactions
Soluble in water.
AMMONIUM SULFITE is a reducing agent. Emits toxic sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen when heated to decomposition [USCG, 1999].
Inhalation of dust causes irritation of nose and throat. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Dust irritates eyes.
Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen may form in fires.
Ammonium sulfite is used in medicines, metal lubricants; explosives, photography, hair wave solutions; and to make other chemicals. It is also used as a preservative, and for treating agricultural grain.
UN2693 Bisulfites, inorganic, aqueous solutions, n.o.s., Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material. UN3077 Environmentally hazardous substances, solid, n.o. s., Hazard class: 9; Labels: 9-Miscellaneous hazardous material, Technical Name Required.
A strong reducing agent. Reacts violently with strong oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides.
Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal,state, and local environmental regulations must be observed. May be buried in a chemical waste landfill in accordance with federal, state, and local statutes; or, if oxidized and neutralized, it may be sent to a municipal sewage treatment plant for biological treatment Incineration.
