Caustic Soda

Caustic Soda Flakes

Sodium hydroxide in solid form, also called caustic soda, is an inorganic chemical compound belonging to the strongest alkali. In solid form, it is a white substance with crystalline appearance (flakes). It has hygroscopic properties. It is perfectly soluble in water, forming corrosive soda lye , which is accompanied by the release of significant amounts of heat.

Caustic Soda Flakes

Definition and Usage Areas:

Pure sodium hydroxide is a colorless, crystalline solid that melts at 318 ° C without degradation. Highly soluble in water, found with a lower solubility in ethanol and methanol, but insoluble in ether and other non-polar solvents.

Similar to the hydration of sulfuric acid, dissolving solid sodium hydroxide into water is an extremely exothermic reaction in which large amounts of heat are released, posing a threat to safety with the possibility of splashing. The solution obtained is generally colorless and odorless. As with other alkaline solutions, it becomes slippery in contact with the skin.

Sodium hydroxide reacts with protic acids to produce water and related salts. For example, when sodium hydroxide reacts with hydrochloric acid, sodium chloride is formed:

NaOH (aq) + HCl (aq) → NaCl (aq) + H 2 O (l)

Generally, such neutralization reactions are represented by a simple net ionic equation:

OH - (aq) + H + (aqueous) → H 2 O (I)

This type of reaction with a strong acid emits heat and is therefore exothermic. These acid-based reactions can also be used for titrations. However, sodium hydroxide is not used as the primary standard because it is hygroscopic and absorbs carbon dioxide from the air.

Caustic Soda is a white, hygroscopic substance. It dissolves easily in water and forms a soft slippery and soapy solution. It has an itchy effect on human tissue. It is used to capture acidic gases such as CO2 in the laboratory. It is used in the production of many chemicals in the industry, artificial silk, soap, paper, paint, detergent industry and petroleum refineries. When it reacts with water, its temperature rises to 50 degrees Celsius in about 5 minutes and remains hot for about 15 minutes.
