Sodium gluconate is a very useful compound, which is widely used in industry. For example, it can be used as a cleaning agent for steel surfaces, and it can also colorize chlorine and oxygen in the electroplating industry.
The first application of sodium gluconate was as a cleaning agent for steel surfaces. If the steel surface needs to be plated, it will be strictly cleaned when it is used for special purposes. At this time, sodium gluconate solution needs to be used. It can also be used as an admixture for cement. After adding sodium gluconate to the cement, it can increase the plasticity and strength of the concrete.
Sodium gluconate also has some related applications in the construction industry. For example, sodium gluconate can be used as a water reducing agent. Sodium gluconate can be used as a retarder, which can significantly delay the initial and final setting time of concrete. It can also be used as a stabilizer for water quality, because sodium gluconate has the effect of high-quality corrosion and scale inhibition, so it is widely used as a stabilizer for water quality.
Sodium gluconate is also used in medicine, because sodium gluconate can regulate the acid-base balance of the human body, so it can also be used to restore normal nerves. It can be used as a food additive. The appearance is mainly white crystalline particles or powder. It is easily soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol, but sodium gluconate is not soluble in ether.
