Sodium carbonate is commonly known as soda ash or washing soda which is an inorganic material with chemical formula (N2CO3). Sodium carbonate is solid, odourless, white colour, amorphous, hygroscopic and having solubility in almost every solvent including water. The sodium carbonate is basic in nature and forms highly basic solution when dissolved in water. It is extracted from ash of plants which have high content of sodium. It is also manufactured form sodium chloride and limestones by process of ‘Solvay Process.’ Even though sodium carbonate has low toxicity, long-time exposure may cause eye or skin irritation. In reality, the ingestion of sodium carbonate could cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach ache. It is chemically active and release carbon dioxide when treated with the acids.
The Global sodium carbonate market is anticipated to grow at CAGR of 3% during the forecast period of 2021 to 2027.
