Sodium Fluoride

Sodium Fluoride

Sodium Fluoride is an inorganic, ionic, fluoride compound. Usually either a white powder or colorless crystal, sodium fluoride is water soluble, slightly soluble in alcohol, and only weakly soluble in alkaline aqueous solutions. This material is most commonly associated with toothpaste, where it works to whiten the teeth. It is a widely used material however, and can be found used in medicines, cosmetic & personal care products, metallurgical processes, glass production processes, water treatment, and various types of agricultural pesticides.

As a glass material, sodium fluoride has a lower refraction index than all other common optical materials. This material is used in processes involving: optical glass, electronic, light-emitting, solvent, and research.

Additional Notes:
* This material should be kept dry and away from oxidizing agents.
* Medical Imaging: Sodium Fluoride F 18 Injection USP, is a powerful tracer material used for diagnostic positron emission tomography (PET). It is quickly taken up by the bone and quickly clears out. F18 has a half life of about 110 minutes, and its decay results in around 511-keV, which is considerably greater than similar materials used for PET. In spite of these qualities, the brevity of F18’s half life can be restricting to its usage, as it must be used within a short time.
