We are a leading Manufacturer & Supplier of Formate Chemical such as Ammonium Formate, Calcium Formate, Potassium Formate and Sodium Formate from India.
CAS No 540-69-2
Application / Uses Preparation Pure ammonium formate decomposes into formamide and water when heated, and this is its primary use in industry. Formic acid can also be obtained by reacting ammonium formate with a dilute acid, and since ammonium formate is also produced from formic acid, it can serve as a way of storing formic acid.
Application / Uses Preparation Calcium formate, is the calcium salt of formic acid, HCOOH. It is also known as food additive E238 in food industry. The mineral form is very rare and called formicaite. It is known from a few boron deposits. It may be produced synthetically by reacting calcium oxide or calcium hydroxide with formic acid.
Application / Uses Preparation Potassium formate is the potassium salt of formic acid. It is an intermediate in the formate potash process for the production of potassium. Potassium formate has also been studied as a potential environmentally-friendly deicing salt for use on roads
Application / Uses Preparation Sodium formate is used in several fabric dyeing and printing processes. It is also used as a buffering agent for strong mineral acids to increase their pH, and as a food additive
