Sodium Carbonate, Anhydrous, Powder, Reagent, ACS also known as washing soda, is a white powder without smell that readily absorbs moisture present in the air. Glass production is by far the biggest source of use for it. Acting as a flux for silica it enables the melting point to be lower, facilitating the glass making process. As a sodium salt it makes for a great electrolyte and is often used as one in chemistry. It is also used as household water softener, food additive and in taxidermy. As an ACS grade Reagent, ScienceLab compound is used as the quality standard against which other substances are grade and has met the toughest regulatory standards for quality and pureness.
Synonyms: Exsiccated Sodium Carbonate
