Synthesis of sodium acetate

Preparation of sodium acetate trihydrate

Preparation of sodium acetate

Preparation of sodium acetate

Crystallized sodium carbonate is dissolved in a little of distilled water. The solution of acetic acid is added to the solution of sodium carbonate to slight excess. Then the obtained sodium acetate is evaporated to crystallization, and purified by recrystallization from hot water. Sodium acetate prepared by the described method contains three three molecules of water (CH3COONa • 3H2O). In order to removed water and obtain anhydrous salt please refer preparation of fused sodium acetate.
