Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble. Thio and dithiocarbamates slowly decompose in aqueous solution to form carbon disulfide and methylamine or other amines. Such decompositions are accelerated by acids.
An inhibitor of superoxide dismutase, having both antioxidant and oxidant effects.
Odorless white or slightly brown or slightly pink crystals.
Flash point data for Sodium diethyldithiocarbamate are not available; however, Sodium diethyldithiocarbamate is probably combustible.
Sodium diethyldithiocarbamate is not compatible with strong oxidizing agents. Aqueous solutions slowly decompose to form carbon disulfide and an amine. Such decompositions are accelerated by acids. Addition of acid to the aqueous solution produces a white turbidity .
