Sodium Bicarbonate also named as sodium hydrogen carbonate, with chemical formula of NaHCO3, is a common chemical compound which is widely used in various industries. Sodium Bicarbonate is a salt composed of a sodium cation (Na+) and a bicarbonate anion (HCO3−). Sodium bicarbonate is a white crystalline solid, but often emerging as fine powder. Sodium Bicarbonate has a salty alkaline taste similar to washing soda (sodium carbonate). Sodium Bicarbonate is a very weak base which is soluble in water and dissociates into sodium (Na) and bicarbonate (HCO3) ions in solution.
