Usage areas of Sodium Sulfide
Sodium Sulfide, chemical formula is Na2S. It has a moisture-retaining feature. Sodium sulfide is a highly odorous and strong reducing chemical, yellow in color that dissolves very easily in water. When sodium sulfide is heated it gives polysulfides, which are used in the preparation of artificial sulfur baths. Also known as sodium sulfide. Industrial sodium sulfide, which contains impurities, becomes brown, khaki and pink in color. The boiling point, weight and melting point also change due to impurities. It can be obtained by the coal reduction method. It is obtained by precipitating sodium sulphate as a by-product as well as obtaining barium sulphate by using the barium sulphate method by using the sodium sulphate and barium sulfate metathesis reaction. Hydrogen sulfide gas is obtained when Na2S and hydroxide acid are mixed one-to-one. Hydrochloric acid is added to sodium or potassium cyanide to obtain hydrogen cyanide.
- In the Field of Ceramics; It is used for suppressing quartz in the ceramic field.
- In the Metal Field; It is used as a sulphurisation reagent in the preparation of oxide, metallic copper, zinc and lead minerals for flotation. It is also used as a suppressor in the selective flotation of semi-noble metal scales.
- In the Field of Leather; Na2S is used for hair removal in the leather field.
Na2S is a chemical compound with a chemical formula Na2S. Na2S is used in the pulp and paper industry, water treatment, textile industry, and various chemical manufacturing processes including the production of rubber chemicals, sulfur dyes and oil recovery. Along with its hydrate form, Na2S releases hydrogen sulfide (H2S) when in contact with moist air. H2S is an endogenous gaseous transmitter that exhibits anti-inflammatory and antiapoptotic properties. Along with other sulfides, the anti-inflammatory and tissue-protective effects of Na2S have been investigated in models of inflammation and oxidative stress. Interestingly, Na2S was shown to have some cardioprotective role against cardiac ischemia or reperfusion injury, as well as protect lungs against ventilator-induced lung injury 1. However the clinical significance and mechanism of action of sodium sulfide and replication of results across other studies are not yet fully determined.
