Information @ a Glance

  • Most of the Sodium Chlorate produced in the world is used for paper pulp bleaching. The next important use is in the manufacture of perchlorates
  • Sodium Chlorate is produced when an acid solution of sodium chloride is heated and electrolyzed and then crystallized.
  • Sodium Chlorate is manufactured by the electrolytic oxidation of Sodium Chloride using Titanium substrate anodes. Sodium Chloride is thrown out from the solution by evaporation and Sodium chlorates crystallizes on cooling.
  • Costs of production are driven by salt and electricity, which account for more than 80% of variable manufacturing costs.
  • The active ingredient sodium chlorate is found in a variety of commercial herbicides. Some trade names for products containing sodium chlorate include Atlacide, Defol, Drop-Leaf, Fall, Harvest-Aid, Kusatol, Leafex, and Tumbleaf.Sodium chlorate is used in Some aircraft as a source of supplimental oxygen. Iron powder is mixed with Sodium chlorate and ignited by a charge activated by pulling on the emergency mask. The reaction produces more oxygen than is required for combustion.
  • Sodium chlorate is used as a non-selective herbicide. It is considered phytotoxic to all green plant parts. It can also kill through root absorption. Sodium chlorate may be used to control morning glory, Canada thistle, johnson grass, bamboo, ragwort and St John's wort. The herbicide is mainly used on non-crop land for spot treatment and for total vegetation control on roadsides, fenceways, ditches and suchlike.
  • Sodium chlorate is also used as a defoliant and desiccant for cotton, safflower, corn, flax, peppers, soybeans, grain sorghum, southern peas, dry beans, rice and sunflowers. If used in combination with atrazine, it increases the persistence of the effect. If used in combination with 2,4-D, it improves performance of the material. Sodium chlorate has a soil-sterilant effect. Mixing with other herbicides in aqueous solution is possible to some extent, so long as they are not susceptible to oxidation.
  • Sodium chlorate comes in dust, spray and granule formulations. There is a risk of fire and explosion in dry mixtures with other substances, especially organic materials, that is other herbicides, sulfur, phosphorus, powdered metals, strong acids. Particularly, when mixed with sugar it has explosive properties. The ease of availability of these two ingredients make it a common choice for home made bombs. Marketed formulations contain a fire depressant, but this has little effect if deliberately ignited. 
  • The only byproduct in the manufacture of Sodium Chlorate is Hydrogen gas. Hydrogen comes out of chlorate cells contaminated with about 3% Oxygen and 0.5% of Chlorine. In Indian factories, hydrogen is being blown out, after scrubbing the chlorine by alkali.
    In developed countries abroad ,the units use hydrogen for burning as fuel or as raw material for producing hydrogen peroxide and other chemicals or is compressed and sold in cylinders. The recovery of hydrogen involves substantial investment which may not be worthwhile for small units.
  • Plant with capacity of 3000 tonnes/year will need an investment of about 7 Crores according to some consultants. The long term outlook for Sodium chlorate is healthy as paper bleachers continue converting from the use of elemental chlorine to chlorine dioxide, which is derived from sodium chlorate.
