Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye and caustic soda, is an inorganic compound with the formula NaOH. Sodium Hydroxide Flakes are white solid ionic compound consisting of sodium cations Na+ , also hydroxide anions OH− This flakes are highly caustic base and alkali that decomposes proteins at ordinary ambient temperatures and may cause severe chemical burns. Furthermore It`s highly soluble in water, and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide from the air. It forms a series of hydrates NaOH·nH2O. The mono-hydrate NaOH·H2O crystallizes from water solutions between 12.3 and 61.8 °C. The commercially available “sodium hydroxide” is often this mono-hydrate, and published data may refer to it instead of the anhydrous compound. As simple hydroxides, employs beside neutral water and hydro-chloric acid to demonstrate the PH.
