    Product Overview

    Sodium citrate is a salt form of citric acid where the hydrogen ions are replaced by sodium citrate chemical formula Na3C6H5O7. Saline-sodium citrate solutions with a pH around 7-8 are commonly used as anticoagulants. Sodium citrate usually appears as a white, odorless, crystalline powder with sodium citrate molar mass of 258.07 g/mol and density of 1.78 g/cm3. It has a mildly salty and tart taste. The anticoagulant properties of sodium citrate come from its ability to chelate calcium ions needed for blood clotting. It also helps maintain blood pH and osmotic pressure when combined with saline. Citrate has a variety of applications and uses.

    The main application of Sodium Citrate
    • Sodium citrate in food enhances sour, fruity flavors. It acts as an antioxidant to prevent vitamin degradation and maintain freshness.
    • In pharmaceuticals, trisodium citrate dihydrate uses as an alkalizing excipient to control drug pH and solubility.
    • In oral care products such as toothpaste and mouthwash, trisodium citrate dihydrate acts as an antacid while freshening breath.
    • Sodium citrate in skincare is commonly utilized as a pH for skin health and absorption of active ingredients.
    • The chelating ability of sodium citrate enables it to remove metal oxide and scale deposits from equipment and surfaces.
    • Sodium citrate uses as a pickling solution applied topically to metals to eliminate surface corrosion by chelation.
