Sodium Benzoate (the sodium salt of benzoic acid ) is a colorless or white crystalline powder or granular. It is soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol. It is used as one of the principal antimicrobial and antifungal preservatives used in foods, beverages, cosmetic, dental care products, and pharmaceuticals, but it's concentration is limited usually not exceeding 0.1% because it is poisonous. Antimicrobial activity is effective in acidic conditions (pH 4.5 or lower). The lower the pH level, the greater the effectiveness is expected. It is also used in medications, anti-fermentation additives and tabletting lubricant for pharmaceuticals. It may also be used as a test for liver function. The industrial applications are as a corrosion inhibitor in antifreeze products, as a nucleating agent for polyolefin, as a dye intermediate, and as a catalyst. Potassium Benzoate (the potassium salt of benzoic acid ) is an alternative to sodium benzoate. Potassium Benzoate replaces sodium benzoate where low sodium content is required.
