Sodium Hydrosulfite

Sodium Hydrosulfite (Na2S2O4) is a whitish to yellowish crystalline solid with a sulfur dioxide-like odor. This chemical spontaneously heats on contact with air and moisture. Characterisitics include: pyrophoric, water-reactive, strong reducing agent. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Sodium Hydrosulfite.
