SODIUM ALUMINATE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesSodium aluminate is a white crystalline solid or solution.
  • UsesMordant, zeolites, water purification, sizing paper, manufacture of milk glass, soap and cleaning compounds.
  • Definitionsodium aluminate: white solid,NaAlO2 or Na2Al2O4, which is insolublein ethanol and soluble inwater giving strongly alkaline solutions;m.p. 1800°C. It is manufacturedby heating bauxite withsodium carbonate and extractingthe residue with water, or it may beprepared in the laboratory by addingexcess aluminium to hot concentratedsodium hydroxide. In solutionthe ion Al(OH)4- predominates.Sodium aluminate is used as amordant, in the production of zeolites,in effluent treatment, in glassmanufacture, and in cleansing compounds.
  • General DescriptionWater solution of the white crystalline powder. Corrosive to metals and tissue.
  • Air & Water ReactionsSodium aluminate will dissolve in water and produce a strong corrosive alkaline solution. May generate heat when water is added.
  • Reactivity ProfileSODIUM ALUMINATE generates a strong base in water; reacts violently with acids and corrosive to metals. Not compatible with copper, tin, zinc, aluminum, acids, phosphorus, or chlorocarbons.
  • Hazard(Solution) Strong irritant to tissue.
  • Health HazardMaterial is caustic. Irritates skin, eyes, and gastrointestinal tract, causing redness of skin and eyes, burning sensation of mucous membranes.
  • Fire HazardBehavior in Fire: Containers may burst when exposed to heat.
  • Safety ProfileModerate irritant to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. A corrosive substance. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NazO.
  • Potential ExposureUsed in water and waste treatment; papermaking industry; in printing on fabrics; in the manufacture of pigments, milk glass, and soap; hardening building stone; sizing paper; as a water softener.
  • ShippingUN2812 Sodium aluminate, solid, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material. UN1819 Sodium aluminate, solution, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material.
  • IncompatibilitiesThe aqueous solution is a strong base. Reacts violently with acid. Incompatible with organic anhydrides; isocyanates, alkylene oxides; epichlorohydrin, aldehydes, alcohols, glycols, caprolactum, chlorocarbons. Corrosive to metals; attacks copper, tin, aluminum, and zinc.
