Sodium perchlorateEdit

Formula: NaClO4Edit

Description: Sodium perchlorate is hardly ever used in pyrotechnics, since it is very hygroscopic . It finds occasional use in composite rocket propellants. It is however very usefull as a starting point in the preparation of several other (less hygroscopic) perchlorates for which reason it is included here.

Hazards: Sodium perchlorate is toxic, and breathing protection should be worn when handling fine powder.

Sources: Sodium perchlorate can be prepared at home. It involves electrolysing a sodium chloride solution under certain circumstances. A description of the process, cell and anode design, etc. for home produciton may be found in the chlorate and perchlorate section of this page.
