At room temperature, sodium hydroxide is an odorless white crystalline solid that absorbs moisture from the air (hygroscopic). It is a manufactured substance. When dissolved in water or neutralized with an acid, it releases a large amount of heat which may be sufficient to ignite combustible materials. Sodium hydroxide is very corrosive. It is generally used in solid form or as a 50% solution.

Sodium hydroxide is a highly corrosive base that breaks down proteins at normal room temperature and can cause severe chemical burns. It is very soluble in water and readily absorbs moisture and carbon dioxide from the air.

As one of the simpler hydroxides, sodium hydroxide is often used in combination with neutral water and hydrochloric acid to demonstrate the pH scale to chemistry students.

Sodium hydroxide is used in many industries: in pulp and paper manufacturing, textiles, drinking water, soaps and detergents, and as a drain cleaner.

What is Sodium Hydroxide used for?
