Sodium Chlorite Production Cost Analysis 2020

Sodium chlorite finds extensive use in the production of paper as a disinfectant. The primary application of sodium chlorite is in the creation of chlorine dioxide for bleaching or for the stripping of textiles, pulp, and paper. Another use of this chemical compound can be seen in the disinfection of municipal water treatment plants after converting it to chlorine dioxide. The benefit in this application, as compared to the more commonly used chlorine, is that trihalomethanes, like chloroform, are not created from organic contaminants. Chlorine dioxide that is produced from sodium chlorite is approved by the FDA under specific conditions while dealing with disinfecting water to be used to wash fruits, vegetables, and poultry.

Sodium chlorite can easily be found in a number of applications as a component like in therapeutic rinses, mouthwashes, toothpaste and gels, mouth sprays, and even as a preservative in eye drops and contact lens cleaning solution. In organic synthesis, sodium chlorite is frequently used as a reagent in the Pinnick oxidation for the oxidation of aldehydes to carboxylic acids.
