Sodium Hydroxide, referred to as Lye or Soda, is a hygroscopic inorganic compound with a corrosive nature. It appears as a white solid with no odor and a bitter taste at room temperature. Its strong basic nature creates a lot of heat when combined with water or neutralized with an acid. Beads of sodium hydroxide are more consistent in shape and size than the flakes. Although lab grade chemicals have an acceptable purity, they do not meet any recognized quality or purity standards such as the ACS Grade, USP Grade, or FCC Grade. Due to the high purity level of our Sodium Hydroxide Beads, Lab Grade, it is highly suggested for educational institutes and research labs. Lab Alley is selling its premium quality products online at laballey.com in the United States of America (USA).
Sodium hydroxide, also known as lye and caustic soda, is an inorganic compound with the formula NaOH. It is a white solid ionic compound consisting of sodium cations Na⁺ and hydroxide anions OH⁻ .
At room temperature, sodium hydroxide is a white crystalline odorless solid that absorbs moisture from the air. It is a manufactured substance. When dissolved in water or neutralized with acid it liberates substantial heat, which may be sufficient to ignite combustible materials. Sodium hydroxide is very corrosive. It is generally used as a solid or a 50% solution. Other common names include caustic soda and lye. Sodium hydroxide is used to manufacture soaps, rayon, paper, explosives, dyestuffs, and petroleum products. It is also used in processing cotton fabric, laundering and bleaching, metal cleaning and processing, oxide coating, electroplating, and electrolytic extracting. It is commonly present in commercial drain and oven cleaners.
