Soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate, is an important chemical basic raw material.
Commonly known as soda, soda ash, soda ash, washing soda, containing ten crystal water, sodium carbonate is a colorless crystal, the crystal water is unstable, easy to weather, it becomes a white powder Na?CO? after it becomes a strong electrolyte, with salt permeability and thermal stability It is easy to dissolve in water, and its aqueous solution is alkaline.
Sodium carbonate that exists in nature (such as saltwater lakes) is called trona. The industrial name of sodium carbonate without crystal water is light alkali, and the industrial name of sodium carbonate without crystal water is heavy alkali. Sodium carbonate is a salt, not an alkali. The aqueous solution of sodium carbonate is alkaline, so it is also called soda ash. It is an important inorganic chemical raw material, mainly used in the production of flat glass, glass products and ceramic glaze. It is also widely used in household washing, acid neutralization and food processing.
