So, what is sodium thiosulphate?

Sodium thiosulphate is a chemical compound with the formula Na2S2O3. It is also known as sodium hyposulphite and is commonly used in photographic processing, medical treatments, and water treatment systems. The white crystalline substance has a faint odor of sulfur and is highly soluble in water. Sodium thiosulphate is an important reagent in analytical chemistry due to its ability to react with iodine and other oxidizing agents. It also has antibacterial properties and is used in some skin care products. However, high concentrations can be toxic and should be handled with care.
