This solution consists mostly of water with chlorine dioxide as a very weak solution - along with regular table salt and several other trace neutral chemicals, such as sodium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, and sodium bicarbonate - none of which are considered poisonous. The trace chemicals are neutralized by the acid (HCL) that activates the chlorine dioxide.
Chemical Structure of NMS
It starts off as a 22.4% solution of sodium chlorite, made by adding sodium chlorite to water. The sodium chlorite can be bought from chemical companies already in water, or it can be bought as a powder. However, it is with the sodium chlorite from which chlorine dioxide is generated and diluted in water, thereby making NMS1. The chemical formula of sodium chlorite is NaClO2. NMS (Natural Mineral Salts) Sodium chlorite is a very stable chemical. If stored in airtight containers as a dry product could last for more than 20 years, and solutions of sodium chlorite are fully usable after being stored for 5 years in a closet out of the light.
