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.

Safety tips

Principal routes of exposure are by accidental skin and eye contact and inhalation of generated dusts. Chronic dust inhalation has been associated with lung disease. (Source: NIOSHTIC). Symptoms are those of nodular fibrosis and respiratory impairment is characterized by obstruction and restriction of lung function.
