Sodium Nitrite USP
Formula: NaNO2
Weight: 69.00
Nitrous acid, sodium salt.
Sodium nitrite [CAS Number 7632-00-0]

Sodium Nitrite contains not less than 97.0 percent and not more than 101.0 percent of NaNO2, calculated on the dried basis.

Identification: A solution of it responds to the tests for Sodium and for Nitrite.
Loss on drying: Dry it over silica gel for 4 hours: it loses not more than 0.25% of its weight.
Heavy metals: Dissolve 1 g in 6 mL of 3 N hydrochloric acid, and evaporate on a steam bath to dryness. Reduce the residue to a coarse powder, and continue heating on the steam bath until the odor of hydrochloric acid no longer is perceptible. Dissolve the residue in 23 mL of water, and add 2 mL of 1 N acetic acid: the limit is 0.002%.

Sodium Nitrite BP Pharmacopoeia
Formula: NaNO2

DEFINITION
Content: 98.5 per cent to 100.5 per cent (dried substance).

CHARACTERS
Appearance: Colourless crystals or mass or yellowish rods, hygroscopic.
Solubility: Freely soluble in water, soluble in alcohol.

IDENTIFICATION
A. Dilute 1 ml of solution S1 (see Tests) to 25 ml with water R. To 0.1 ml of the solution add 1 ml of sulphanilic acid solution. Allow to stand for 2-3 min. Add 1 ml of b-naphthol solution and 1 ml of dilute sodium hydroxide solution R. An intense red colour develops.
B. To 1 ml of the solution prepared for identification test A add 3 ml of a 20 g/l solution of phenazone and 0.4 ml of dilute sulphuric acid. An intense green colour develops.
C. To 0.15 ml of solution S1, add 0.35 ml of water R. The solution gives reaction of sodium.

TESTS
Solution S1: Dissolve 2.5 g in carbon dioxide-free water and dilute to 50 ml with the same solvent.
Solution S2: Dissolve 3 g in distilled water. Cautiously add 10 ml of nitric acid and evaporate to dryness. Dissolve the residue in 10 ml of distilled water R, neutralize with dilute sodium hydroxide solution  and dilute to 30 ml with distilled water.
Appearance of solution: Solution S1 is clear and not more intensely coloured than reference solution.
Acidity or alkalinity: To 10 ml of solution S1, add 0.05 ml of phenol red solution. Add 0.1 ml of 0.01 M sodium hydroxide. The solution is red. Add 0.3 ml of 0.01 M hydrochloric acid. The solution is yellow.
Chlorides: Maximum 50 ppm.
Dilute 10 ml of solution S2 to 15 ml with water. The solution complies with the limit test for chlorides.
Sulphate: Maximum 200 ppm.
Heavy metals: Maximum 20 ppm.
Loss on drying: Maximum 1.0 per cent, determined on 1.000 g by drying in vacuum.

Sodium Nitrite FCC
