Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC782


Sodium Thiocyanate is also known as sodium rhodonate, sodium sulphocyanide, thiocyanic acid, and sodium rhodanide, among others. It is a chemical compound which has a formula NaSCN and appears to be white powder or colorless. This powder can be easily dissolved with ethanol, acetone and water. It is orthorhombic shaped crystal which has melting point of 287 degree Celsius and relative density 1.735. On heating under light sodium thiocyanate decomposes and produces harmful gases of sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxides and cyanides. Also vigorously reacts with strong bases, strong oxidants and acids. Due to these existing properties of sodium thiocyanate, it is used in wide range of applications in various end-user industries. Industries such as fiber, pharmaceutical, architecture, personal care products and pesticide among others are the major customer of sodium thiocyanate market.
