Sodium sulfoxylate formaldehyde (also known as rongalite) is the sodium salt form of formaldehydesulfoxylate, also known as hydroxymethanesulfinic acid. It was originally developed as a treatment for mercury poisoning but was found to be of limited value. Currently, it is widely used in organic synthesis. It can be used as a reducing agent for elemental selenium and tellurium, diselenides, α‐halo ketones, and aromatic aldehydes. It yields symmetrical sulfones with primary halides and with Michael acceptors. Sodium sulfoxylate formaldehyde is a water-soluble antioxidant and is generally used as the dihydrate. It is used as an excipient in the formulation of injection products at a level of up to 0.1% w/v (weight by volume) in the final preparation administered to the patient.
