Sodium sulfide Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Sodium sulfide

Sodium sulfide is also known as smelly soda and stinky base. At room temperature, the pure product is colorless or slightly purple prismatic crystal. The industrial sodium sulfide often exhibits pink, reddish brown or yellowish brown color for containing impurities. It has rotten egg smell and is corrosive and toxic. Its density is 2.427. It will be subject to decomposition at 920 ℃. It is soluble in cool water and easily soluble in hot water with dissolving in water almost fully being hydrolyzed into sodium hydroxide and sodium hydrosulfide (at 10 ℃, the solubility is 15.4; while the solubility is 57.2 g at 90 ℃). The aqueous water exhibits strongly alkalinity and is corrosive on copper, wood, skin, etc. It is slightly soluble in ethanol but insoluble in ether. When being encountered strong acid, the sodium sulfide will release hydrogen sulfide. It will be subject to deliquescence in air and is easily oxidized into sodium thiosulfate. Sodium sulfide is mainly used as the raw materials of hides depilatories, pulp cooking agent, and sulfur dye, the reducing agents of dye intermediates, fabric dyeing mordant, and ore flotation agent. It can also be used as viscose fiber desulfurizer and the raw material for production of sodium hydrosulfide and sodium polysulfide.
The sodium sulfide in our county was originated in the 1830s. The production of it was earliest started from a chemical plant in Dalian, Liaoning in small-scale. Upon entering into the mid-1980s to the 1990s, with the vigorous development of the international chemical industry, the domestic industry had undergone a fundamental transformation with both the number and scale of production being dramatically increased with rapid development. The production area of sodium sulfide centered in Shanxi Yuncheng has quickly expanded to a dozen of other provinces or cities including Yunnan, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia, and Shaanxi. The national annual production capacity has increased from the value of 420,000 tons by the end of the 80s to a value of 640,000 tons in mid-1990s. The region with the fastest growing includes Inner Mongolia, Gansu, and Xinjiang region at northwest of China. The production capacity has reached 200,000 tons in Inner Mongolia, which has become the largest production base of sodium sulfide in China.

Packing, storage and shipping: sodium sulfide belongs to alkaline corrosive substances, classification: GB 8.2 class, number:82011. It is packed with a tight leakproof iron drums with the net weight per barrel being 25.50 kg or 100 kg. The packaging should contain obvious "drugs" and "corrosive substance" signs. It should be stored in a dry, airy shed asbestos with the container must be intact. It can’t be stored and shipped together with acidic materials and oxidizing agents.

Toxicity

Sodium sulfide is strongly corrosive to the skin. Worker subjecting to contact with a solution of sodium sulfide has their hand skin get ruffling and redness. During the operation, you should note that: upon inadvertently contact with skin, you should rinse with water. After the sodium sulfide droplets or small pieces falling into eyes, immediately wash with water for 15 min and send to hospital for treatment. To protect the skin, it is recommended to wash hands with a weak acetic acid solution and then coated with oily ointment. Pay attention to the protection of eye.

Preparation of polyarylene sulfide

We can take industrial sodium sulfide and poly-halogenated aromatic compounds as raw materials; apply multi-component composite catalyst or additive and carry out segmented poly-condensation at normal pressure in high-boiling polar organic solvent (such as hempa) for generating linear high molecular weight polyarylene sulfide. The reaction conversion rate is high with the product being white granular and with excellent mechanical properties, thermal properties and thermal processing stability. Additionally supplement of a certain amount of cross-linking agent can generate higher molecular weight branched or cross-linked polyarylene sulfide.

Production method

Pulverized coal reduction method: put mirabilite and coal powder in a mixing ratio of 100: (21 to 22.5) (weight ratio) for calcination and reduction at 800~1100 ℃. The resultant after cooling is molten into a liquid. After standing for clarification, the upper portion of the alkaline solution was concentrated to obtain a solid sulfide. The flake (or granules)-like sodium sulfide is made through the transition tank and flaking. The reaction equation is as below:
Na2SO4 + 2C → Na2S + 2CO2
Absorption method: use 380~420 g/L sodium hydroxide solution to absorb H2S> 85% containing hydrogen sulfide waste gas; the resulting product was concentrated by evaporation to obtain sodium sulfide products. Its reaction equation is as below:
H2S + 2NaOH → Na2S + 2H2O
Barium sulfide method: use sodium sulfide and barium sulfide for cross-metathesis reaction to get precipitated barium sulfate. During this process, we can get the byproduct sodium sulfide. The reaction formula is as below:
BaS + Na2SO4 → Na2S + BaSO4 ↓
Gas reduction method: in the presence of iron catalyst, put hydrogen (or carbon monoxide, coal gas, methane gas) into boiling furnace for reaction with sodium sulfate, we can obtain high-quality anhydrous granular sodium sulfide (containing Na2S: 95%~97% ). Its reaction equation is:
Na2SO4 + 4CO → Na2S + 4CO2
Na2SO4 + 4H2 → Na2S + 4H2O
Refined method using the byproduct (4% of sodium sulfide) during the production of precipitated barium sulfate as raw material, pump it into dual-effect evaporator for concentration into 23%; it further enters into the mixing tank for removing iron as well as carbon; pump it into the evaporator (manufactured by pure nickel material) to evaporate the lye into a certain concentration and further send it into the roller squeezing apparatus for flaking and further obtain the finished product after screening and packaging.
Pulverized coal reduction method is the traditional production method for making sodium sulfide. During the manufacturing process, improve the equipment and materials and increase the iron removal process so that the products can meet standards.

Uses

Sodium sulfide (Na2S) is used in the dye industry, in the oxidation process of gold, lead, and cooper metal ores, as a sheep dip, and to process paper.

Uses

These yellow flakes were made by fusing sodium carbonate with sulfur. Soluble in water but less so in alcohol, sodium sulfide was lovingly called “stink” by those who used it for toning prints or intensifying negatives because of its sulfurous smell.

Definition

A yellow-red solid, Na2S, formed by the reduction of sodium sulphate with carbon (coke) at elevated temperatures. It is a corrosive and readily oxidized material of variable composition and usually contains polysulphides of the type Na2S2, Na2S3, and Na2S4, which cause the variety of colours. It is known in an anhydrous form (r.d. 1.85; m.p. 1180°C) and as a nonahydrate, Na2S·9H2O (r.d. 1.43; decomposes at 920°C). Other hydrates of sodium sulphide have been reported. The compound is deliquescent, soluble in water with extensive hydrolysis, and slightly soluble in alcohol. It is used in wood pulping, dyestuffs manufacture, and metallurgy on account of its reducing properties. It has also been used for the production of sodium thiosulphate (for the photographic industry) and as a depilatory agent in leather preparation. It is a strong skin irritant.

Definition

ChEBI: A sulfide salt with formula Na2S. The pentahydrate and (particularly) the nonahydrate are also known. In gel form, sodium sulfide is used to soften toenails to assist in trimming (and so relive pain) of ingrowing toenails.

General Description

Sodium sulfide is a yellow to brick red crystalline mass or fused solid with an odor of rotten eggs. If exposed to moist air Sodium sulfide is liable to spontaneous heating and may cause ignition of nearby combustible material. Sodium sulfide absorbs moisture from the air.

Air & Water Reactions

Aqueous solutions of sodium sulfide when exposed to air slowly convert to sodium hydroxide and sodium thiosulfate. The crystalline form upon exposure to air forms hydrogen sulfide and sodium carbonate [Merck 11th ed. 1989].

Reactivity Profile

SODIUM SULFIDE is a white to yellow crystalline material, flammable. Can explode on rapid heating or when shocked. Violent reaction with carbon, charcoal, diazonium salts, N,N-dichloromethylamine, strong oxidizers, water. On contact with acids Sodium sulfide liberates highly toxic and flammable hydrogen sulfide gas. When heated to decomposition Sodium sulfide emits toxic fumes of sodium oxide, and oxides of sulfur [Bretherick, 5th ed., 1995, p. 1729].

Hazard

Flammable, dangerous fire and explosion risk. Strong irritant to skin and tissue, liberates toxic hydrogen sulfide on contact with acids.

Health Hazard

Caustic action on skin and eyes. If ingested may liberate hydrogen sulfide in stomach.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating sulfur dioxide is produced in fire.

Industrial uses

In non-metallic flotation, sodium sulfide is also used as a depressant and for collector desorption, in particular, fatty acids from monazite, pyrochlore, zircon and microcline. As a depressant for quartz, sodium sulfide is an excellent depressant for iron-activated quartz as well as non-activated quartz.

Industrial uses

Sodium sulfide (Na2S·9H2O) is a hygroscopic substance with a specific gravity of 1.864 and a melting temperature of 1180 °C. The reagent is soluble in water. The aqueous solution of sodium sulfide has a highly alkaline reaction resulting from its hydrolysis: Na2S + H2O ? NaOH + NaHS

Safety Profile

A poison by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Flammable when exposed to heat or flame. Unstable and can explode on rapid heating or percussion. Reacts violently with carbon, diazonium salts, n,n-dichloromethylamine, onitroaniline diazonium salt, water. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of SOx and Na2O. See also SULFIDES

Purification Methods

Some purification of the hydrated salt can be achieved by selecting large crystals and removing the surface layer (contaminated with oxidation products) by washing with distilled water. Other metal ions can be removed from Na2S solutions by passage through a column of Dowex ion-exchange A-1 resin, Na+-form. The hydrated salt can be rendered anhydrous by heating it in a stream of H2 or N2 until water is no longer evolved. (The resulting cake should not be heated to fusion because it is readily oxidised.) Recrystallise it from distilled water [Anderson & Azowlay J Chem Soc, Dalton Trans 469 1986]. Note that sodium sulfide hydrolyses in H2O to form NaHS + H2O, and is therefore alkaline. A 0.1N solution in H2O is 86% hydrolysed at room temperature. Its solubility in H2O is 8% at 0o, 12% at 20o and 30% at 50o. The anhydrous salt is obtained by allowing it to stand in a vacuum over conc H2SO4 or P2O5 at 45o to start with, then at 30-35o when the salt contains 4% of water. The last traces of water are removed by heating to 700o in a glass or porcelain tube in a stream of H2 to give pure H2S. [Fehér in Handbook of Preparative Inorganic Chemistry (Ed. Brauer) Academic Press Vol I pp 358-360 1963.]
