Detailed Product Description:
Sodium bisulfate (aka, sodium hydrogen sulfate) is a hygroscopic
compound. Its melting point is poorly defined because it begins to
decompose into sodium pyrosulfate and water before it reaches its
Solutions of sodium bisulfate are acidic, with a 1M solution having
pH of 1.4. In some applications, such solutions can be used instead
of sulfuric acid solution. For example, from a solution of sodium
bisulfate and sodium acetate it is possible to distill acetic acid. Sodium
bisulfate solutions will also liberate CO2 from most carbonates.
Sodium bisulfate behaves, to some degree, as if it were a complex of
sodium sulfate with sulfuric acid. This is evident if either the anhydrous
form or the monohydrate come in contact with ethanol, which causes
them to separate into those two components.
Often used as an ingredient in foods such as dressings or sauces. Also
Used in fruit and vegetable processing and as a preservative for soil
and water samples in analytical laboratory analysis.
Commonly used in swimming pools for lowering the pH (reducing
