About Sodium hydroxide
Sodium hydroxide (also caustic soda), chemical formula NaOH, is a white hygroscopic solid. With a world production of 60 million tons in 2010, the compound is one of the most important basic chemical materials and is mainly traded in the form of caustic soda.
In the laboratory, sodium hydroxide can be prepared by reacting sodium carbonate with calcium hydroxide to give sodium hydroxide and calcium carbonate:
Na2CO3 + Ca(OH)2 → 2 NaOH + CaCO3.
The calcium carbonate, which is not very soluble, is filtered off. The highly soluble sodium hydroxide remains in the filtrate. This process of causticization used to be carried out on a large scale and is again of interest today. Another method is the strongly exothermic reaction of elemental sodium with water to form sodium hydroxide and hydrogen:
2 Na + 2 H2O → 2 NaOH + H2
At school, this experiment is often shown to demonstrate the reactivity of alkali metals with water. After evaporation of the water, solid sodium hydroxide remains:
NaOH (aq) → NaOH (s).
The Acker process for the preparation of sodium hydroxide by fused-salt electrolysis of sodium chloride was developed by Charles Ernest Acker (1868-1920) in the United States of America.
Industrially, sodium hydroxide is produced by electrolysis of sodium chloride to caustic soda, hydrogen and chlorine gas:
2 NaCl +2 H2O → Cl2 + H2 + 2 NaOH.
There are three different process technologies for this:
1. amalgam process
2. diaphragm process,
3. membrane process
Common to all processes are additional purification and concentration stages to obtain anhydrous sodium hydroxide. Since the demand for chlorine has stagnated since the 1980s, the caustic soda produced as a by-product of chlor-alkali electrolysis no longer fully covers world demand, making recausticizing interesting again.
Sodium hydroxide is a white hygroscopic solid and is one of the strongest bases. In water it dissolves very well under great heat generation due to the negative enthalpy of solution of -44.4 kJ/mol to the strongly alkaline reacting sodium hydroxide solution (pH 14 at c = 1 mol/L). It is always completely dissociated in aqueous solution. However, at higher concentrations, the interionic forces between the sodium and the hydroxide ions make themselves felt on the free mobility of the ions, so that a normal solution (40 g sodium hydroxide in a liter) appears to be about 78% dissociated, a 0.1-n solution about 90%. It reacts with carbon dioxide in the air to form sodium hydrogen carbonate and is therefore stored in airtight containers. To prevent the sodium hydroxide from binding water from the air, it can be stored together with a desiccant. As a strong base, the hydroxide ion displaces weaker and volatile bases from their salts.
Between room temperature and melting point, 318.4 °C, anhydrous sodium hydroxide occurs in two modifications. Below 299.6 °C (α-modification), sodium hydroxide crystallizes with an orthorhombic crystal structure with the space group Cmcm (space group no. 63), above this (β-modification) lower symmetrically with a monoclinic crystal structure with the space group P21/m (space group no. 11). The sodium hydroxide molecule is linear and in this order parallel to the c-axis. Sodium and oxygen form extended bilayers similar to the sodium chloride structure in x,y, with sodium and oxygen alternating in the directions (x-y). The layer thickness is slightly greater than the sodium-oxygen distance in the molecule. Longitudinally c consecutive layers are shifted by 1/2 a. The lattice constants at 24 °C are a = b = 3.3994 ± 0.001 Å, c = 11.377 ± 0.005 Å, α = β = γ = 90°. The molecule is angled in the  plane. The angle β depends on the temperature. As the temperature increases, so does the approximation to the type of sodium chloride structure present in sodium fluoride. α-Sodium hydroxide is often twinned according to . The β-modification is always twinned to approximately equal volume fractions according to . It emerges from the α-form by shifting the layers longitudinally . The structure of the bilayers is preserved. In addition, the compound occurs in several hydrate forms. Thus, the mono-, di-, 3,5-, tetra-, penta-, and heptahydrate are known. The metastable form of the tetrahydrate β-NaOH-4 H2O has an orthorhombic crystal structure with space group P212121 (space group no. 19) with four formula units per unit cell and lattice constants a = 6.237, b = 6.288, c = 13.121 Å at -155 °C. The hydrates NaOH-3.5H2O and NaOH-7H2O each have a crystal structure with space group P21/c (space group no. 14) with eight formula units per unit cell (lattice constants a = 6.481, b = 12.460, c = 11.681 Å, β = 104.12° at -100 °C) and four formula units per unit cell (a = 7.344, b = 16.356, c = 6.897 Å, β = 92.91° at -150 °C), respectively. The monohydrate melts at 64.3 °C, the 3,5-hydrate at 15.6 °C.
If sodium hydroxide is stored unsealed in air, it reacts with carbon dioxide to form sodium hydrogen carbonate or sodium carbonate, so it is stored in airtight containers.
NaOH + CO2 = NaHCO3
2 NaOH + CO2 = Na2CO3 + H2O
In the laboratory, ammonia is easily produced by the acid-base reaction of sodium hydroxide and ammonium chloride.
NaOH + NH4Cl = NH3 + NaCl + H2O
As a solution, it reacts with aluminum (to form aluminum sodium dioxide) and many other metals, such as iron, copper, cadmium, cobalt, and titanium.
2 Al + 2 NaOH + 2 H2O = 2 NaAlO2 + 3 H2
Sodium hydroxide reacts with acids to form salts, and the heat generated is so considerable that an explosion occurs with strong acids, for example, when concentrated sulfuric acid is dropped onto powdered sodium hydroxide.
Sodium hydroxide is commercially available in plastic containers in an airtight package in the form of small beads or as pellets.
Sodium hydroxide is mainly used in the form of caustic soda and is one of the most important chemicals in industry. Solid sodium hydroxide, along with aluminum chips, is an essential ingredient in drain cleaners. When dissolved in water, the strong base oxidizes aluminum under heat and hydrogen evolution and then dissolves fats and proteins in the deposits by saponification. Hot solution is used to dissolve fire deposits in cooking pots. Sodium hydroxide is not suitable for aluminum pots.
Caustic soda is the name for alkaline solutions of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in water.
Sodium hydroxide dissolves very well in water under strong heat. A saturated aqueous solution at room temperature contains 1260 g of sodium hydroxide to one liter of water. Caustic soda is one of the most commonly used laboratory and industrial chemicals. Concentrated caustic soda is highly corrosive to the skin, and even very dilute caustic soda can damage the cornea of the eyes to the point of causing blindness. One-molar sodium hydroxide solution (a solution containing one mole of NaOH (40 g) in one liter; equivalent to about 3.9 wt%) has a pH of 14.
Extraction – Caustic soda is usually obtained by electrolysis from an aqueous solution of sodium chloride. This method is called chlor-alkali electrolysis. Various technical processes can be used. The reaction equation for the overall reaction is:
2 NaCl + 2 H2O = 2 NaOH + Cl2 + H2
Chlorine is also produced in the process. The chemical industry's great need for caustic soda has contributed significantly to the development of chlorine chemistry. Electrolysis can also be used to convert other metal salts to their hydroxides. For example, if potassium chloride is used instead of sodium chloride, potassium hydroxide solution is obtained. Chlor-alkali electrolysis is an endothermic reaction. The required energy is supplied in the form of electric current. Caustic soda can also be washed from red mud.

Caustic soda should never be stored in vessels with ground glass stoppers. Sodium bicarbonate forms on the ground joint with the carbon dioxide from the air: This salt crust sticks the ground joint to the sleeve. In addition, sodium hydroxide attacks most glassware, which is why it is generally recommended above a concentration of 0.1 mol/L to use an alkali-inert container, e.g. made of polyethylene, with a screw cap or, if necessary, rubber stoppers for a short time. For volumetric NaOH solutions, glass vessels are completely prohibited.
Caustic soda, like all alkalis, must be neutralized with suitable acids before being introduced into the sewage system. If necessary, the concentration of the resulting salts must then be reduced by dilution. Small quantities, such as also occur when using certain cleaning agents, must only be sufficiently diluted.
What is sodium hydroxide?
Sodium hydroxide is a white solid which is better known as caustic soda in aqueous solution.
What does the abbreviation NaOH stand for?
The abbreviation NaOH stands for sodium hydroxide (a white solid), which is better known as caustic soda in aqueous solution.
What is the molar mass of NaOH?
The molar mass of NaOH is calculated from the molar masses of its constituents as follows: M(NaOH) = M(Na) + M(O) + M(H) = 23 g/mol + 16 g/mol + 1 g/mol = 40 g/mol (rounded; where M = molar mass). Unrounded, we get M(NaOH) = 39.997 g/mol (M(Na) = 22.989769 g/mol, M(O) = 15.999 g/mol, and M(H) = 1.00784 g/mol).
What is the difference between sodium hydroxide and caustic soda?
While sodium hydroxide is a solid that has the chemical formula NaOH, caustic soda is nothing more than the aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide.
Is sodium hydroxide / NaOH hygroscopic?
Sodium hydroxide / NaOH is strongly hygroscopic, i.e. it absorbs water from the air, is hydrophilic or binds water. You can observe this effect well if you put solid NaOH into a weighing boat, which is placed on an analytical balance. Over time, the mass on the weighing boat increases and the previously solid NaOH melts. Because of its hygroscopicity, solid NaOH should be stored in tightly closed containers.
What does 1 mol/L NaOH mean?
1 mol/L NaOH means that there is the amount of substance of 1 mol NaOH in a volume of one liter. Since NaOH has the rounded molar mass of M(NaOH) = 40 g/mol, there are therefore 40 g of NaOH in one liter.
Where to buy NaOH?
We recommend you to buy NaOH from ITW Reagents. We offer high quality PanReac AppliChem branded products for your application in laboratory and production. Check our online catalog and search for NaOH, caustic soda, sodium hydroxide or simply use CAS number 1310-73-2 in the search box.
What is the CAS number for NaOH?
The CAS number for NaOH (sodium hydroxide) is 1310-73-2, but since sodium hydroxide is a solution, it does not have a CAS number. Nevertheless, it is (actually) common that caustic soda is also found under this CAS number. In addition, there are CAS numbers for sodium hydroxide monohydrate (12179-02-1) and sodium hydroxide tetrahydrate (23340-32-1).
What is the density of NaOH?
The density of pure NaOH is 2.13 g/cm3; the melt has a density of 1.77 g/cm3 at 350 °C.
What is the density of NaOH 1 mol/L, NaOH 1M or NaOH 1N?
The density of 1M NaOH, 1mol/L NaOH or 1N NaOH is 1.04 g/cm3 (20 °C).
What is the melting point of pure NaOH?
The melting point of NaOH is 323 °C.
What is the boiling point of pure NaOH?
The boiling point of NaOH is 1390 °C.
What is the pH of NaOH 1 mol/L, NaOH 1N and NaOH 1M?
The pH of NaOH of 1mol/L NaOH, 1N NaOH and 1M NaOH is 14.
How to calculate the pH of a NaOH 1 mol/L, NaOH 1M and NaOH 1N?
The pH of a 1 mol/l NaOH can be done as follows:
1). As NaOH is a strong base, NaOH is dissociating complety in NaOH => Na+ + OH-.
2.) The dissociation of 1mol/L NaOH results in 1 mol/L Na+ and 1 mol/L OH-.
3.) pOH = -log c(OH-) = log 1 = 0
4.) pH + pOH = 14 => pH =14-0
What does 1 M NaOH mean?
The capital letter M is used to indicate the molarity of a solution, i.e., the concentration in mol/L. Molarity is an obsolete term that is still used in the laboratory. Today, one uses the molar concentration c instead (c = n/V, with c = molar concentration, n = amount of substance, V = volume).
What does 1 N NaOH mean?
1N NaOH or NaOH 1N means that the NaOH solution in one normal. The capital letter N is used to indicate the normality of a solution, i.e., it is the equivalent concentration. In normality, another factor, stoichiometry, is added to molarity. Normality is defined as molarity multiplied by a stoichiometric factor z. N = M * z. Examples: In the case of NaOH, the OH- ion is the species of interest. When NaOH dissociates, an OH- ion is formed. It follows that z = 1. Inserted into the formula this means: N = M *1 With NaOH it is always true that M = N, so a one molar solution is equal to a normal one. A 1 molar H3PO4 solution (phosphoric acid), phosphoric acid has three protons as the species to be considered, thus has z = 3. Therefore, a one molar (1 M) H3PO4 solution is three normal (3N).
How do you store sodium hydroxide / NaOH?
Since NaOH is metal corrosive, NaOH is not stored in metal drums. Usually NaOH is stored in plastic containers because it also attacks glass. Sodium hydroxide and caustic soda are also stored at room temperature over tubs. NaOH is hazardous to water, has water hazard class 1 (WGK 1), so the tub size to be used must also be considered (depends on the container sizes stored). Please always keep in mind that the density of solid NaOH and NaOH solutions is > 1 g/cm3, e.g. approx. 1.5 g/cm3 for 50% NaOH, 2.13 g/cm3 for solid NaOH.
How do you prepare a NaOH measured solution of concentration 1 mol/L?
Place 100 mL of distilled and degassed water in a volumetric flask of 1 L volume. Then accurately weigh approximately 40 g of NaOH (equivalent to 1 mol of substance) in a weighing boat on an analytical balance and transfer it to the volumetric flask (use a solid funnel). Please note that the mass on the balance increases continuously due to the hygroscopicity of the NaOH. Do not panic, keep calm! Then fill the volumetric flask with distilled water up to the calibration mark. The lower part of the meniscus touches the calibration line of the volumetric flask. After shaking the solution, you now have the measuring solution ready for which you now only have to determine the titer or correction factor.
