Description of key information

The available data on the physical and chemical properties of sodium hydrogensulfite:

Appearance: inorganic, clear aqueous solution.

Relative density at 20 °C: 1.304 (37 wt% aqueous solution).

Solubility in water : 724 g/L at 20 °C (42 wt% in water)

Corrosive to metals: GHS criteria not met (weight loss 13.5 %)

Waivers are proposed for most of the endpoints: melting and boiling point, particle size distribution, vapour pressure, partition coefficient, surface tension, flash point, auto flammability, flammability, explosiveness, oxidising properties, stability in organic solvents, dissociation constant and viscosity, as well as for pyrophoric properties and flammability in contact with water.
