INTRODUCTION

Sodium perchlorate monohydrate is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula NaClO4•H2O. It is the common existence form of sodium perchlorate, which can gradually absorb water in the air to form the monohydrate. Sodium perchlorate monohydrate is white rhombic crystal which is highly soluble in water and in alcohol. Its capacity to undergo redox reactions, liberating oxygen atoms, has been harnessed in the preparation of specialty chemicals, including pharmaceutical intermediates and fine chemicals.

Manufacture

Sodium perchlorate is produced by anodic oxidation of sodium chlorate (NaClO3) at an inert electrode, such as platinum.
