Application / Uses Preparation
Sodium periodate is the sodium salt of periodic acid. It can refer to two different chemical compounds, sodium metaperiodate (often abbreviated as m-periodate), which has the formula NaIO4, and sodium orthoperiodate (often abbreviated as o-periodate), which has the formula Na5IO6. Both salts are useful in certain synthetic chemistries for the oxidative power of the periodate ion.
