Sodium carbonate [497-19-8] (Na2CO3), molecular weight 105.99. Chemical purity is more than 99.5% (mass fraction), also known as soda ash, but the classification belongs to salt, not alkali. Also known as soda or soda ash in international trade. It is an important organic chemical raw material, mainly used in the production of flat glass, glass products and ceramic glazes. It is also widely used in domestic washing, acid neutralization and food processing.

Sodium carbonate is a white, odorless powder or granule at room temperature. It has water absorption, and gradually absorbs 1mol / L of water (about = 15%) in exposed air.
Used in the food industry as neutralizers and leavening agents, such as the manufacture of amino acids, soy sauce and noodles such as steamed bread and bread. It can also be formulated into alkaline water and added to pasta to increase elasticity and ductility. Sodium carbonate can also be used to produce MSG
Should be placed in a cool and dry place indoors, avoiding sun and rain.
