Description of key information

The rel. density of sodium O-isobutyl dithiocarbonate  is 1.24 measured at room temperature according to Xanthates" in Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry (2005).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Relative density at 20C:
1.24

Additional information

True specific gravity, can be expressed mathematically as:

SGtrue = p sample/ p H2O

where p sample is the density of the sample and p H2O is the density of water.

 Specific gravity, as it is the ratio of densities, is a dimensionless quantity.

Specific gravity varies with temperature; reference and sample must be compared at the same temperature, or corrected to a standard reference temperature. Substances with a specific gravity of 1 are neutrally buoyant in water, those with SG greater than one are denser than water.
