Although there are great regional differences in diet, sweet food has a high degree of uniformity, both men and women, old and young, have a stubborn preference for it. Early sweets were mainly flavored with sucrose, but clinical data showed that some patients with diabetes and hyperglycemia could not eat it. In this regard, scientists have found a lot of alternative drugs after further research, which mainly show that they do not participate in human cell activities and will not be absorbed. And saccharin sodium is one of them. With the increase of market demand, more and more manufacturers expand production lines for production. So, how should saccharin sodium manufacturers prepare saccharin sodium?
In general, saccharin sodium manufacturers will use toluene and chlorosulfuric acid to dp chloro-sulfonation for saccharin sodium to obtain oil-like o-toluenesulfonyl chloride and by-product, namely crystalline p-toluenesulfonyl chloride. After separation, saccharin is reacted with ammonia and oxidized to obtain saccharin. Finally, it is alkalized by sodium hydroxide.
At present, saccharin sodium is widely used in the following industries:
1. Food industry: general cold drinks, beverages, jelly, popsicles, pickles, preserves, cakes, cold fruits, protein sugar, etc. It is used in the food industry and diabetics to sweeten the diet, and is a commonly used synthetic sweetener.
2. Feed additives: pig feed, sweeteners, etc.
3. Daily chemical industry: toothpaste, mouthwash, eye drops, etc.
4. Electroplating industry: Electroplating grade saccharin sodium is mainly used for electroplating nickel, which is used as a brightener. Adding a small amount of sodium saccharin can increase the light height and flexibility of electroplated nickel. The general dosage is 0.1g to 0.3g per liter of liquid medicine. Among them, the consumption of electroplating industry is large, accounting for the majority of the total production.
