Synthesis of disodium phosphate (disodium hydrogen phosphate)

Preparation of disodium phosphate

Preparation of disodium phosphate

Preparation of disodium phosphate

80 g of calcium phosphate (or 100 grams of bone ash) are mixed in a porcelain evaporating dish with 70 of water and stirred until a thick paste is obtained. 47 ml of concentrated sulfuric acid are added as rapidly as possible without excessive heating. The stirring is continued vigorously until the mixture begins to stiffen. This usually requires from 10 to 15 minutes. Then 500 ml of cold water are added and the obtained paste is stirred until the lumps disappear. The suspension is filtered, washed with 50 ml of cold water. The combined filtrates are treated with anhydrous sodium carbonate (~55-60 grams) in small portions with stirring until the reaction is slightly alkaline and effervescence no longer takes place. The solution is filtered and the filtrate is evaporated to 250 ml. Slowly the crystals of disodium phosphate starts to separate, which are collected, washed with a little amount of distilled water and dried. Disodium phosphate obtained by described method contains twelve molecules of waters and forms disodium phosphate dodecahydrate – Na2HPO4 · 12H2O.
