Formate Salts

Formate Salts: Tiny Titans of Industry 
Formate salts, formed from formic acid and metals, are unsung heroes. These salts (metal + formate anion) power various processes.
Sodium formate, the kingpin, tackles de-icing, textile dyeing, and food anti-caking. Potassium formate extends food shelf life. Looking to the future, ammonium formate stores hydrogen in fuel cells. Even livestock benefit from calcium formate for digestion and bones.
Beyond the common sodium type, calcium formate aids leather tanning and prevents corrosion. Potassium formate fertilizes fields and protects crops from frost. Ammonium formate helps produce formamide, an industrial solvent.
Science gets a boost too. Formate salts act as buffers in reactions and cryoprotectants, shielding samples during freezing.
So next time you see a plane land in winter or enjoy a long-lasting snack, remember the tiny titans – formate salts.
