With the utmost support from our talented employees, we are growing as the reputed manufacturer and supplier of Sodium Acetate Anhydrous. It is a colorless powder having the chemical formula CH3COONa and molecular mass of 82.03 g/mol. Also known as sodium ethanoate, this compound is utilized in textile industry for neutralizing the sulfuric acid waste streams and can also be used as a food seasoning in the form of sodium diacetate. Sodium Acetate Anhydrous can also be produced in the laboratory by reacting acetic acid with 5-8% vinegar with Na2CO3.
CAS No. 127-09-03
Soluble in alcohol
Monoclinic crystalline structure
What is anhydrous sodium acetate used for?
When extracellular fluid is lost suddenly via parenteral administration, sodium acetate anhydrous is employed as an electrolyte replenisher in isotonic solution to replace the lost fluid without disrupting the body's natural electrolyte balance. A form of organic sodium salt is sodium acetate.
How do you make sodium acetate anhydrous?
To create anhydrous sodium acetate, the sodium acetate trihydrate is first acquired, heated to a temperature between 120 and 130 DEG C, then decompressed and concentrated, cooled, and crystallised.
What happens when sodium acetate is added to water?
Hydrolysis occurs when sodium acetate is dissolved in water. Salt hydrolysis happens when a weak acid or base (or both) is dissolved in water. On its own, water ionises into hydrogen cations and hydroxide anions. Sodium acetate breaks down into sodium and acetate ions in water.
What method is used to prepare anhydrous salts?
Hydrated salts can be made anhydrous by heating or by exposing them to dry air. Was this answer helpful?
