Sodium Nitrite

 

Sodium Nitrite is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula NaNO2. It is a white to slight yellowish crystalline powder that is very soluble in water and hygroscopic.  

Sodium Nitrite is a useful precursor to a variety of organic compounds, such as pharmaceuticals, dyes, and pesticides, but it is probably best know as a food additive.

Interesting Fact - Sodium Nitrite is used as a humane toxin for wild boar control in Australia. It reduces the amount of oxygen that is released from hemoglobin, so the animal will feel faint and pass out, and then die after first being rendered unconscious.
