Sodium iodate is the sodium salt of iodic acid which is used as an oxidizing agent. Sodium iodate is a colorless, rhombic crystal and is used as the catalyst in bis-indole synthesis. Sodium iodate is formed by the chemical reaction between a salt base and acid. Sodium iodate may decompose on exposure to light, air, or moisture and is heat and shock sensitive. The reaction between a concentrated solution of sodium hydroxide and iodine can also lead to the formation of sodium iodate. Sodium iodate is used as a source of iodine supplement and also as analytic reagent.
