Sodium carbonate is a white mineral solid compound. This chemical is the sodium salt of carbonic acid.
Sodium bicarbonate is mostly made by the Solvay process, which is the same reaction of sodium chloride, ammonia and carbon dioxide in water.
Sodium bicarbonate is obtained as a precipitate and after filtering and drying it turns into sodium carbonate.
It is also possible to obtain sodium carbonate in the form of a precipitate by passing the gas through the boiling solution of pure sodium carbonate.
This chemical is available in the market in both light and dense forms.
