EC No: 231-786-5
CAS No: 7727-54-0
EC name: diammonium peroxodisulphate
IUPAC name: diammonium peroxodisulphate
Trade name: Ammonium Persulphate
Synonyms: Ammonium Peroxydisulphate
Physical appearance: white crystals
Ammoniumpersulphate is an odourless, white, crystalline salt with hygroscopic character.
In humid atmosphere it has a tendency for lump formation.
Therefore, an optional delivery with silicic acid is possible. (0,3 % and 0,5 %)
It is a strong oxidizer and releases sulfuric acid when decomposing.
Additionally, due to its high purity it has good storage stability and as well as it can be easily and safely handled.
It is not flammable but highly oxidizing.
