Sodium Acetate is an organic sodium salt than contains an acetate. It is a hygroscopic powder and very soluble in water. It can be used for additives in food, industry, concrete manufacture, heating pads and in buffer solutions. When put in water it forms sodium ions (Na+) and acetate ions.
Sodium Acetate can be mildly irritating to the eyes and skin. When it decomposes on heating or when in contact with a strong acid, the danger of acetic acid fumes arising exists.
