: 144-55-8

Molecular Formula

: NaHCO3

Molecular Weight

: 84.01
Appearance/Description: White crystalline powder.
Solubility: Soluble in water; insoluble in alcohol.Practically insoluble in ethanol (95%)
Identification (Sodium): A dense precipitate should form.
Identification (Bicarbonate 1): Effervesce with acids, evolves a colorless gas that when pass into calcium hydroxide solution produces white precipitate immediately
Identification (Bicarbonate 2): A cold solution should be only slightly colored by phenolphthalein solution
Identification (By chemical test 1): A pale pink color should produce. On heating gas should evolve and the solution become red
Identification (By chemical test 2): white precipitate should form which dissolves on addition of an excess of hydrochloric acid.
