Sodium Bicarbonate - Technical grade

Sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate, also commonly known as bicarbonate of soda, is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate is an odourless, white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder.

It is slightly alkaline similar to that of washing soda (sodium carbonate). It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. The natural mineral form is known as nahcolite. It is also produced artificially.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a technical grade product and is not intended for human or animal consumption.

Sodium bicarbonate can be added as a simple solution for raising the pH balance of water that has a high level of chlorine, such as in swimming pools and aquariums.

As a cleaning agent:

A paste from baking soda can be very effective when used in cleaning and scrubbing.

A solution in warm water will remove the tarnish from silver when the silver is in contact with a piece of aluminium foil.


It is a key ingredient in bath bombs and the like, recipes for which are readily available online.

Remember you will need Cosmetic Product Safety Reports (CPSR's) if you wish to sell these on to others. Both recipe, method and CPSR will be available through LiveMoor very soon.

Homemade snow:

A fun experiment for kids and adults alike. In a bowl add 600g of sodium bicarbonate followed by an aerosol tin of shaving foam. Mix the two ingredients thoroughly until a thick snow-like consistency is produced.

CAS Number: 144–55–8
EINECS: 205–633–8
Appearance: White crystalline solid.
Density: 2.159 g/cm3, solid.
Molar Mass: 84.006 g/mol
Formula: NaHCO3
Solubility: soluble in water 9.6 g/100 ml @ 20C

The solubility of sodium bicarbonate in water increases with temperature – 69 g/l (at 0C), 96 g/l (at 20C), 165 g/l (at 60C).

When dissolved in water the sodium ion will not adsorb to particulate matter, but remains in the aqueous phase. In water the bicarbonate ions will re-equilibrate until an equilibrium is established.
