Sodium bisulfite, also known as sodium hydrogen sulfate, is a chemical compound. Its chemical formula is NaHSO3. It is made of sodium and bisulfite ions. It is a white solid with an odor of sulfur dioxide. It can be made by reacting smaller amounts of sodium dioxide and sodium hydroxide or sodium bicarbonate. If too much sodium hydroxide is used, sodium disulfite is made instead.
