Sodium nitrate is Human poison by ingestion. Poison by intravenous route. It is questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. Sodium nitrate (WeiKu) is a kind of powerful oxidizer. It will ignite with heat or friction. Explodes when heated to over 1000°F, or when mixed with cyanides, sodium hypophosphite, boron phosphide. Forms explosive mixtures with aluminum powder, antimony powder, barium thiocyanate, metal amidosulfates, sodium, sodium phosphinate, sodium thiosulfate, sulfur + charcoal (gunpowder). Potentially violent reaction or ignition when mixed with bitumen, organic matter, calcium-silicon alloy, jute + magnesium chloride, magnesium, metal cyanides, nonmetals, peroxyformic acid, phenol + trifluoroacetic acid. Incompatible with acetic anhydride, barium thiocyanate, wood. A dangerous disaster hazard. Experimental reproductive effects. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx and Na2O.
