Is Formic Acid Toxic?

Formic acid is a common industrial raw material. Is it toxic? Let's take a look at it.


Sodium formate is non-toxic to human body. Molecular formula: HCOONa CASNO: 141-53-7 Appearance: White granular or crystalline powder properties: density 1.429g/cm3, melting point 253 C, soluble in water, soluble in ethanol, non-toxic, non-corrosive.


It has reducibility, can react with strong oxidant and is easy to deliquescence. Uses: Leather industry, camouflage acid in chromium tanning process: used as catalyst and stabilizer synthesizer: reductant in printing and dyeing industry; used in the production of insurance powder, oxalic acid and formic acid.


Cautions for transportation and storage: Sodium formate is non-toxic to human body. Non-corrosive, non-flammable, usually safe storage, moisture absorption, easy to deliquescence, storage and transportation process should pay attention to moisture-proof, when moisture absorption agglomeration does not change the nature of the product, can be used normally after crushing.
