Sodium iodide is an inorganic sodium salt and an iodide salt. It is a white, water-soluble solid made up of a 1:1 mixture of sodium cations (Na+) and iodide anions (I) in a crystal lattice under normal circumstances. It is a chaotropic salt.
It is a strong deliquescent, which absorbs moisture and transforms into a solution. It is produced by the addition of sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate to hydroiodic acid. Its primary applications in medicine are as nutritional supplements and additives.

On Long-term usage:
Q. Is Sodium Iodide ionic or covalent?
Sodium iodide is a water-soluble ionic compound with a crystal lattice.
Q. Where to buy Sodium Iodide?
Macsen Labs is a leading supplier of high-quality Sodium Iodide with ISO certification.
Q. Is Sodium iodide soluble in water?
Sodium Iodide is soluble in water, ethanol and acetone.
Q. Is sodium iodide the same as salt?
Salt is chemically sodium chloride. The major distinction between sodium chloride and sodium iodide is that the former consists of an ion of chloride bound to a sodium ion, whereas the latter consists of an ion of iodide.
