C3H5NaO2 Formula wt 96.06
INS: 281 CAS: [137-40-6]
Sodium Propionate occurs as white or colorless, transparent crystals or as a granular, crystalline powder. It is hygroscopic in moist air. One gram is soluble in about 1 mL of water at 25°, in about 0.65 mL of boiling water, and in about 24 mL of alcohol. The pH of a 1:10 aqueous solution is between 8.0 and 10.5.
Function: Preservative; mold inhibitor.
A. A 1:20 aqueous solution gives positive tests for Sodium.
B. Upon ignition, a sample yields an alkaline residue that effervesces with acids.
C. Warm a small sample with sulfuric acid. Propionic acid, recognized by its odor, evolves.
Assay: Not less than 99.0% and not more than 100.5% of C3H5NaO2 after drying.
Alkalinity (as Na2CO3): Passes test (about 0.15%).
Iron: Not more than 0.003%.
Lead: Not more than 2 mg/kg.
Water: Not more than 1%.
