What is Sodium Iodide

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.
