Abstract : A preliminary screen is made of the effects of 75 contaminants on the hygroscopicity of sodium nitrate. Results indicate that contaminants exert a significant effect both in increasing and in decreasing hygroscopicity. Various side effects are noted, for example the pronounced anticaking effect of zirconium sulfate and other compounds. (Author)
