Sodium Thioglycolate

(Sodium Mercaptoacetate) CAS# 367-51-1, EC# 206-696-4


Sodium Thioglycolate's unique reducing properties together with the Thioglycolate's ability to form rather stable metal complexes especially with iron enhance the formulation of cleaners for metal cleaning or auto rim cleaning.

The same properties can be useful in Oilfield Chemicals.

On the other hand the SH-group of the Thioglycolate opens the sulfur bridges in the ceratine structure of hair. Therefore it is used in Leather Chemical formulations for dehairing of animal hides.

The reducing properties of Sodiumthioglycolate 98 % powder suit the application in anaerobic culture media.
